About Jordan
on 01 July 2006. Throughout his time in the Army he served with distinction – this is his third operational tour having deployed twice to IRAQ on Op TELIC 2 and 11.
He was a highly professional and capable Junior Non-Commissioned Officer - one who relished life in the Army. He possessed loyalty 'in spades' and he had an absolute dedication to the Regiment, to the Battalion, to his Company and to the men he served with.
However, more importantly he will be long remembered for his love for his family and girlfriend – they held a special place in his life and were his first love.
Tragically killed doing the job that he loved and excelled at, he will leave a huge hole. He was the epitome

About Jordan
of a Duke of Lancaster's soldier – diligent, selfless, caring and with a profound sense of duty.
He will be sorely missed by all members of the Battalion as a comrade and as a much loved friend – there are few like him.
The family of Lance Corporal Bancroft has made the following statement:
"We will always remember Jordan loving a challenge, in particular outdoor pursuits. He was a keen snow skier and often skied for the Regiment. He loved all watersports and took any opportunity to ride a jet ski or drive a speed boat. We will miss Jordan so much and it will leave a huge hole in all our lives.
"You will always be in our hearts, Jordan - Mum, Dad, your brothers Paul and Leighton,
