I like the title of his book, 'Bullet Proof'.

A Bootneck on Herrick 5 was shot 5 TIMES in a single burst from an RPK (7.62) LMG and is still walking around today. He is pretty bullet proof also.

Once again the Royals are leading from the front. Credit to his Commando unit and the Royals in general.

In this case, the Cdo Unit is RMR.

Thank you for highlighting that.

I think I will put the article in the RMR forum too, if only for the sake of completeness.

For the benefit of those yet to join the service:

There are indeed RMR units around the UK however when you deploy operationally as a trained Reservist, you serve with one of the regular RM units.

In this case the said Marine was a former Regular RM who later joined the RMR.

There are those that say Matt Croucher deserved a Victoria Cross, myself amongst them although purists would state that the heroic act was not actually whilst in direct contact with the enemy.
