Birth: May 16, 1989
Stafford
Staffordshire, England
Death: Oct. 5, 2009
Helmand, Afghanistan


Guardsman
6 Platoon
2 Company
1st Battalion
Grenadier Guards
British Army

He was deployed on his second tour with the UK contingent of NATO forces in Afghanistan.

Guardsman Janes was killed and three other soldiers were wounded by an improvised explosive device while they were on foot patrol in Nad-e-Ali, Helmand province. The explosion was followed by a firefight with insurgents before the soldiers were evacuated.

Aged 20, he grew up in Brighton, East Sussex. He started his army career at age 16 and attended the Harrogate Foundation College before completing infantry training in Catterick. He joined the Grenadier Guards and served numerous state ceremonial and public duties in Woolwich. At age 18, he deployed to Afghanistan for four months. Between tours he served in the Falkland Islands and also conducted training exercises in Kenya with the battalion. His previous operational experience made him an integral member of his company. Described as cool-headed and dependable, he was considered to be a natural soldier with a promising future in the army. He was the 220th British serviceman to die since the start of the Afghanistan conflict in 2001.

Gdmn Janes leaves behind his beloved girlfriend, Kate Woolley, three brothers (one of whom in the British Army), two sisters, and his mother, Jacqueline.

Funeral, with military honours, was held at St Phillips Church, Hove on October 22, 2009. His coffin was carried by horse-drawn carriage to Hove Cemetery for the burial service.
