The critically injured soldier was flown to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast. His father was flown in from Scotland to be at his son's bedside, but the young man passed away.
Gunner Miller was a member of the Royal Artillery, 16th Light Air Defence Regiment (as it was then known). He was 19 and came from Larkhall in Lanarkshire. His killer was also 19, a local man who later received a life sentence for this and the murder of another soldier later the same year.
