Former soldier takes on SAS ‘Fan Dance’ on Pen Y Fan, Brecon, in memory of son, Jamie Fleming

Jamie Fleming from Spinning Path Gardens, Crediton, had served four and a half years in the Army with The Royal Signals when he was killed in a motorcycle accident. To mark the second anniversary of his death his father Stewart, his brother Rory and several Army friends will tackle a 24 kilometre section of the SAS selection route on Pen Y fan to raise money for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. The Soldiers’ Charity is the National Charity of the British Army.

On Monday 18 April they will take on one of the Army’s toughest challenges with a climb to the top of the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons, finishing at Pentwyn reservoir.  The route, described as ‘ a real lung buster’ has long been a crucial element of selection for special forces. Showing the same determination and grit, Stewart who damaged his Achilles tendon in training said “It is not healing too well and I’m not well prepared, but I’m going ahead nonetheless”.
