    Correct Richard, it is the motto of the 'Sally Anne', so carry on, you have clues, Geronimo, Airborne and the 'Sally Anne'.
    What is the connection between 'Goyaalé' and 'Blood and Fire', we don't want to make these too easy do we?

    The jumper was taught to say Geronimo when he jumped from the plane. The time it took to say Geronimo was how long it was supposed to take to clear the plane and for the parachute to deploy.

    Nooooooooo, this question is obviously too 'smart for it's own good' sorry,
    so, another clue and if it's not sorted by tomorrow I'll give the answer and promise not to do any more lateral thinking ones. :oops:
    Clue, the American paratroopers used 'Geronimo' as a 'War Cry'.!
    start Googling!

    I do believe the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment was named Geranimo.

    "The Warcry" is the name of the Sally Anne's newspaper.

    (No, I didn't have to Google, I'm of a certain age!).

    Quiz...

    So, correct, connection is, Goyaale is another name for Geronimo.
    Geronimo was the 'War Cry' of the paratroopers.
    Blood and Fire' is the Motto of the Salvation Army.
    'War Cry' is the weekly religious paper of the Salvation Army.
    So, Connection is the '.War Cry'
