Personal history

Jihad

In late 3070 a lance of the Twentieth Avalon Hussars led by then Leftenant McKinnon had been stranded on the world of Beid by a DropShip malfunction along with a number of walking wounded being repatriated to rear areas of the Suns; they collectively found themselves suddenly in the middle of a Word of Blake raid on Beid launched by a company from the Blakist-employed mercenaries the Black Angus Boys and a detachment from the Word of Blake's Ninth Militia Division, Transfer of Faith III-lambda. The raid was one of a number of attacks and raids launched by Word of Blake units and Blakist-employed militia operating out of Kittery.[1]

The commander of the mercenary forces, Captain Rico Iglesias, expected an easy fight against the Beid planetary militia, who were poorly equipped and not expecting an attack. However, as the mercenaries struck at the city of Newport, they found themselves under attack from a short company of 'Mechs based around McKinnon's lance from the 20th Hussars and a contingent of walking wounded, many piloting already damaged 'Mechs. Fighting in and around Newport, the actions of the hastily assembled short company combined with opportunity sniping from the Beid Militia quickly mowed down the Blakist mercenaries.[1]

In 3077, McKinnon took the command of McKinnon's Company, leading them in the liberation of Terra, in the battles of Bratislava and Budapest.[2]
