Matthew (Tex) Marshall
Matthew (Tex) Marshall was a dedicated, quiet and unassuming soldier, proud to wear his red beret.
As the thirtieth anniversary approaches, of Matthew's death in Mayobridge, Northern Ireland on 18th November 1989, I am creating this Hero Fund in his memory, keeping Matthew's name alive, bringing family and friends together and to raise funds for all Heroes.
Matthew was a steady, reliable and trustworthy paratrooper, well liked and respected by his platoon. Above all, he was kind and generous. Matthew lived his life to the full because he went out to meet it with an abundance of happiness.
After initial training Matthew joined 3 PARA in November 1987 and with 'A' Company he commenced his first tour of Northern Ireland, at the height of the troubles. A soldier's life is not easy at the best of times; in Northern Ireland it required rare qualities of resilience.
Matthew served his country and risked his life in the interests of others. Matthew will always be remembered with honour, by all who knew him, in the army, at home and in his childhood and teenage years.
