2nd Lt MacIntyre was struck on the head by loose rocks, likely to have been dislodged by his companions above him.  He went on to develop epilepsy and permanent right sided hearing loss and was discharged from the army in April 2009 on medical grounds.  
Whilst I have a great deal of sympathy for this chap I can ' t say I am surprised by the outcome but he certainly, in my view, has grounds to claim for an award of money through the AFCS (the wrongly titled 'Armed Forces Compensation Scheme').  Given that he was on duty at the time, albeit adventurous training, the rules under the scheme covers those types of activity.  I hope those representing him have offered him that choice.
