WO2 (QMSI) Dan Shirley

The 10th anniversary of WO2 (QMSI) Dan Shirley’s tragic death (27 June 2008) is approaching and his daughter Jordan is aiming to keep a promise she made herself aged 6 when Dan passed away. Jordan who is now 16 will do a charity parachute jump in aid of ‘Scottys Little Soldiers’ (a charity which provides counselling and experiences for bereaved military children and has helped Dan’s children since his death). Jordan would appreciate any donations for this worthwhile charity and those who would like to make a donation can do so at Jordan’s Justgiving page at:
