Kirintec’s very own ex Royal Logistics Corps Captain Liam FitzGerald-Finch served in the Army for 12 years and was awarded the Queen’s Gallantry Medal.
Liam showed exceptional courage and tireless commitment, ensuring the safety of a convoy on route as part of the Joint Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal Group in Helmand province and thus received the QGM (Queen’s Gallantry Medal)
Liam survived being blown up when the armoured vehicle he was travelling in drove over a bomb. Liam we are very proud of you and your colleagues.
