Narrative conclusion in inquest into ‘friendly fire’ deaths of Captain Sawyer and Corporal Winter
12.3.2015

Following a narrative conclusion at the inquest of Captain Sawyer and Corporal Winter, killed in Afghanistan in a friendly fire incident, their families, represented by QEB Hollis Whiteman Barristers Phil Evans and Tom Coke-Smyth, stated that they believed that the incident could have been avoided had investigations into the use of the Javelin missile in Afghanistan been carried out earlier.
In his conclusion, the Coroner recorded that the failure to include in the Javelin safety case its use in the anti-personnel role had resulted in an inadequate assessment of the risk of using that weapon system and that this contributed to the mistaken firing of the missile which resulted in their deaths.
