Private Mark Connolly, aged 24, serving with the British Army Black Watch died on Saturday 14th May 2011 after a fight in a German bar.
Pvt. Connolly had served in Afghanistan and had survived a bomb blast while serving there.
Two fellow Black Watch soldiers were arrested over the fight which erupted after an argument about football.
Specialist detectives from the British Army Special Investigation Branch have been drafted in to investigate the death.
A colleague of Pvt. Connolly told reporters: "A lot of drink was taken and a minor disagreement about football blew up. Two of Mark's so-called comrades gave him a beating. He survived the Taliban but then dies at the hands of men who are supposed to be his mates."
