Islay Mahony : Timeline Photos On Saturday November 29 we will be holding a memorial night for one of my good mates Josh Porter. I served with Josh in Recon Platoon 1RAR and he was one of the best blokes and best soldiers that I had the pleasure of working with. Josh enlisted in the Australian Army in 2000 and on completion of recruit training he served as a rifleman in The First Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (1RAR). He completed his service as a qualified sniper in Recon Platoon.
Josh successfully completed SAS selection in October 2004 and was posted to Perth as a trooper in the SASR in May 2005. Josh served on operations in East Timor, the Solomon Islands and more recently as part of the special operations group in Afghanistan.
Josh was killed in a Blackhawk helicopter crash in deep water off Fiji as part of Operation Quickstep in November 2006.
Josh is survived by his wife Carinna and his daughter Maddison who was unborn at the time of his death. We will be donating & collecting donations on the night for a charity that Josh's family nominates. All serving members, former serving members and the general public are invited to attend. We will be pouring Josh Porter Pale Ale on the night. 42 minutes ago - View -
