Family Support Tragedy Heroes

The Special Operations soldier who passed away on 13 Oct 17 was Sgt Wayne Taylor, RNZIR, or Tails as he was more commonly known.

Tails joined the Army Reserve in 1993 – joining the Regular Force in October 1997. Tails served in East Timor and Afghanistan, and was awarded the NZDSM (TF), East Timor Medal, UNTAET - East Timor, NZOSM, NZGSM, NZDSM (RF) and NATO ISAF (Afghanistan) medals.

Many of the Regiment, both RNZIR and NZSAS, will remember him as an outstanding soldier, leader, father, family man, and friend to many, as well as being an all round top bloke. He was a consummate professional, who was known for his dedication and reliability – always upholding our core values in every endeavour.

Tails is survived by his wife and their four children.

Use of funds

Funds raised will go directly to Sgt Taylor's family, in an effort to relieve some of the financial burden his loss now brings, and to help support his wife and four children as they navigate life without their beloved husband and father.
