Synopsis

Yvonne Collinson Heath will never forget the telephone call that changed her life for ever. On 23 March 2002, her eldest son, James - a private with the Royal Logistic Corps - was found dead in mysterious circumstances at the notorious Deepcut barracks. He had a single gunshot wound to the head. It was a tragedy that to this day raises questions. "A Mother's War" recounts Yvonne's anguish at losing her son, a boy who dreamed of serving his country but died before he had even reached his 18th birthday. It is also the powerful story of an extraordinary woman who overcame adversity - including the hurt of being abandoned by her father, bullied as a child and abused by a trusted uncle - to find love and raise a son, only to see him cruelly taken from her within weeks of his joining the Army. It reveals how her decade-long quest for answers uncovered sinister secrets and a series of cover-ups that went right to the heart of Whitehall. Above all else, "A Mother's War" is the story of how Yvonne's grief triggered a search for the truth that took her to Downing Street and captured the hearts of the nation.

Born and brought up in Perth, Yvonne Collinson Heath turned the grief of losing her son into a nationwide campaign to bring forward a public inquiry into the deaths of four recruits at the Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut. She currently lives in Cheshire.
