Posthumous VC for Soldier


War Hero
Brave lad.

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.
