An inquest I believe would operate independently of any military or MOD investigation. That would be conducted by a British  Civilian coroner. The set guidelines that lead to an inquest are here.

As Ive been lead to believe, the cause of the accident has already been identified and rectified. All the restrictions on gunnery have now been lifted apparently. The inquest is purely to discover how the crewmen died, and there might be circumstances that might impede the speed of that occurring, without going into details.

 

Inquest procedures do work, they just tend to take their own sweet time over it. Accident investigations usually occur at a somewhat brisker pace, or such is my impression.

As Stuart notes, the inquest has nothing to do with the service inquiry into the incident. As I'm sure you're aware, it is often the case that the UK MOD never tells anyone anything, and tries to lose the details forever ("In the floods of '53") before the 30 year rule lets things leak out.

 

If the incident analysis calls into question the safety and/or lifing of current war stocks, good luck with finding that out before hell offers skiing holidays.

Ive been told the training is now back to normal, so it seems to have been identified.

Yeah, its quite natural for that one to change schemes a lot. Its the demonstration unit, A Squadron, The Royal Tank Regiment. The Granddaddy of them all. The give away is the Chinese eyes, which were the indicator of 4RTR, but now of the unified regiment.

 

The Green and tan  was the usual scheme for them, they have recently be repainting them in Black and Green. And of course as we discussed earlier, they are also evaluating the Berlin camouflage, presumably with Estonia in mind.
