British soldier to receive posthumous VC for bravery in Afghanistan - Telegraph
I'll save the big ups until it is officially gazetted. Newspapers have been known to overstep the mark.
If he does get it I hope it goes someway to ease the pain his family will be feeling, I doubt it will, but, a brave warrior none the less.
It always amazes me when things like this happen. One of my very good friends in 1 Para/SFSG was recently awarded the MC. Oddly enough for an Airborne chap, he's fairly quiet and unassuming. Having served in a war myself, it would never cross my mind to throw myself on a grenade. It just goes to show how brave this Gren was. It makes me sad, but by God it makes me proud as well.
His sacrifice will not be forgotten .:salut:
His father and brother are or were both in the Grenadiers Guards. Brave lad
Very sad that the VC is to be awarded posthumously.
