Corporal 039 (Bloody Sunday)
Corporal 039 was a soldier in the Headquarters Company of 1 Battalion, the Parachute Regiment (1 Para) in 1972. On Bloody Sunday he was a member of the composite "Guinness Force" platoon attached to Support Company of 1 Para.
The Saville Report concluded:
- We are sure that either Private L or Private M, members of Composite Platoon who had taken up positions at the low walls of the Kells Walk ramp, shot Kevin McElhinney as he was crawling south from the rubble barricade away from the soldiers. Both probably fired at him on the orders of one or perhaps two nearby non-commissioned officers, Colour Sergeant 002 and Corporal 039.
