Jack Francis Finn-Kelcey was born in November 1984 and enlisted at Hastings, Sussex 15 August 2000. His Testimonial on discharge records.................
'He applied to join the Parachute Regiment and completed his training at the Infantry Training Centre, Catterick, completing the arduous Pre-Parachute selection. He then moved to RAF Brize Norton where he gained his Military Parachute qualification and became eligible to serve in the Parachute Regiment. Private Finn-Kelcey was posted to the Second Battalion and during his service completed an operational deployment to Northern Ireland (in 2003) and deployment to Operation Telic 3 IRAQ (in 2005) as well as an overseas exercise in Kenya. Awarded the General Service Medal clasp Northern Ireland and the Operational Service Medal IRAQ (sic). Private Finn-Kelcey is a likable, intelligent individual, who has shown himself to be quick to learn and capable of completing tasks to a high standard with little supervision. In his time in the Army (sic), he has displayed leadership potential and the ability to act promptly and independently in the most demanding of circumstances. He has shown himself to be a hard working soldier and one who contributes greatly in group activities. He also has a passion for surfing.
Private Finn-Kelcey is a talented soldier. He is quick thinking and hard working and had shown the potential to advance far within the Regiment, had he chosen to continue his service. He has chosen to leave the Forces because he feels that his future aspirations will be more satisfactorily met outside the British Army. He will be a loss to the Parachute Regiment and will make a valuable asset to any future employer looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual, able to work independently or as part of a team'.

Operation Palliser (Sierra Leone)
1 Para Battle Group (BG), (1 Para minus A company with elements of 2 Para making up the numbers along with the Pathfinder Platoon) deployed to war-torn Sierra Leone via a forward operating base (FOB) in Senegal on the 7th of May, 2000. Their planned role was to facilitate a Non Combatant Evacuation Operation (NEO) in support of the UNAMSIL (United Nations Mission in Sierra Leone) mission to protect civilians caught up in the country's civil war.
The Battle Group secured Lungi Airport, close to the capital, Freetown, for use as a FOB and potential evacuation assembly area. C Coy touched down at the airport in a RAF C130, to be reinforced the next day by D Coy who arrived in 2 RAF Chinooks (7 Squadron Special Forces Flight), who then moved to secure the surrounding Aberdeen Peninsula, including the main road linking the airport to Freetown and the UN command post in a Freetown hotel.
Whilst the 1 Para BG stationed in the vicinity of the airport had a mostly peaceful deployment, the Pathfinder Platoon did engage in a heavy nighttime contact at the village of Lungi Loi, situated some 14 miles away. On the night of May 17th, the Pathfinder patrol came into contact with a force of around 40 Revolutionary United Front (RUF) rebels and a fierce firefight ensued. Back at the airport, elements of C Coy were loaded onto the 2 SF Chinooks and flown into Lungi Loi as reinforcements for the PF Platoon. The Chinooks strafed the jungle with fire from 7.62mm mini guns and inserted C Coy troops, including a mortar team, into Lungh Loi. C Coy linked up with the Pathfinders as an Army Gazelle flew overhead, spotting for the mortar team who pounded the RUF with HE rounds. The Paras were also assisted by Nigerian troops under the U.N, who protected the village's rear approaches. The RUF withdrew from the contact, leaving 4 dead. There were no British casualties.
1 Para Battle Group eventually returned to the UK on May 25th after being relieved by 42 Commando, Royal Marines who had arrived on HMS Ocean, part of the Amphibious Ready Group that had deployed off the Sierra Leone coast.

45 Commando 'Yomp' across East Falkland Island
Battle for Two Sisters
'X Company headed across the open ground towards 'Long Toenail' led by 1 Troop, and less than a mile short of the peak, 3 Troop took over the lead, but half way up was checked by heavy Machine Gun fire and temporarily pulled back. The enemy positions were hit by Milans and some Mortar fire, and now 2 Troop pushed on to the summit under Artillery fire. Reaching the summit they were forced to withdraw by heavy shell fire, but shortly after returned and drove off the enemy Machine Gunners. Soon after midnight, as X Company continued its fight for 'Long Toenail', Z Company followed by Y Company to the right, moved off from 'Pub Garden' on their silent uphill approach. As the Argentines were still distracted by X Company's attack, the other two Companies went to ground until a flare near Z Company led to the right hand 8 Troop opening fire. The return enemy shell and mortar fire was very heavy and killed 4 men, Lieutenant Dytor led his men of 8 Troop forward in a charge towards the summit, followed by 7 Troop in a firefight that still left them short of their objective.
On the right, Y Company swung further right to come up alongside them, managing to knock out some of the Machine Guns holding up Z Company. 8 Troop was then able to advance towards the top covered by 7 Troop, and went on to clear the enemy positions on the southern side of their objective., while 7 Troop went on to do the same on the northern side. Two and a half hours after crossing the start line, Z Company had taken the western part of 'Summer days'. During this time 9 Troop stayed back in Reserve after suffering casualties from the Mortars and Artillery. Y Company now moved between the Two Sisters peaks and below Z Company's 8 Troop, and headed for the eastern part of the north east summit under heavy fire. Pushing on, and again using anti armour weapons against enemy positions, all of Two Sisters was in 45 Commando's hands before dawn. As 45 Commando re organised and dug in heavy enemy shelling commenced. Lt Colonel Whitehead prepared to move ahead towards Tumbledown Mountain, but was halted by Brigadier Thompson. 45 Commando had taken one of the main Argentine defenses for the loss of seven Royal Marines and one Royal Engineer Commando Sapper killed.
The Argentine forces surrendered on 14 June 1982

Long Service & Good Conduct Medal awarded London Gazette 8 April 2006
Goodall enlisted in 1987 and joined 1st Battalion Parachute Regiment undertaking his first tour of Northern Ireland from 18 July 1988 to 30 November 1988 based at Bessbrook. The 1st Battalion returned to Northern Ireland 20 February 1991 as the resident Battalion based at Holywood until 4 June 1993. Further tours took place between 8 November 1994 to 8 May 1995 based in Belfast and June 1997 to 15 December 1997 based in Dungannon. At some time a member of the Red Devils Parachute display team he served in Afghanistan with 2 PARA in 2008 (Operation Herrick VIII).
Both 2 and 3 PARA deployed to southern Afghanistan’s Helmand Province in April 2008, forming all-arms battle groups over 1,150 men strong. 2 PARA operated as Battle Group North operating from five Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) in the Upper Sangin Valley. These were situated in the area of the ‘Green Zone’ fertile farmland stretching one kilometer either side of the Helmand River. They operated in temperatures of over 40 degrees centigrade, in humid conditions, scrambling across ditches and streams that irrigate the area,carrying 60lb equipment weights on patrol and wearing body armor.
'C' Company
2 PARA manning FOB ‘Gibraltar’ was attacked 36 times, its defenders embroiled in 29 fire-fights around their location and targeted or actually bombed 22 times. The average age of the paratroopers was 23; five died in action, 14 were seriously injured and 30 wounded. Such casualty rates are as high as those endured during the Second World War. It is believed they may have killed 150 Taliban. 3 PARA conducted both combat and ‘hearts and minds’ operations with Regional Battle Group (South). They ranged across a spectrum of terrain varying from the irrigated humid conditions of the Green Zone to the harsh and arid desert in Helmand and Kandahar Province; from the mountains of Zabul near the Pakistan border to close street confines in Kandahar City.
In August the 3 PARA Battle Group provided security for the delivery of a massive new hydro-electrical turbine to the Kajaki Dam in northern Helmand. This was conducted through known Taliban strongholds while the enemy was distracted by diversions or cleared from the convoy route. The turbine was delivered with no British fatalities, discrediting the opposition and delivering a much sought material success for ISAF and the Afghan government.
The tour concluded in October 2008, Sgt Goodall left the Army in 2012.
