Full story from the BBC.The widow of a soldier who died saving seven comrades has collected the first posthumous Victoria Cross to be awarded since the Falklands war.
Corporal Bryan Budd, 29, of Ripon, North Yorkshire, was killed when he single-handedly stormed a Taleban position in Afghanistan in August.
Cpl Budd's widow, Lorena, 23, collected the honour from the Queen at a private ceremony in Buckingham Palace.
A bitter-sweet event for Cpl Budd's family, no doubt, but proper recognition of his heroic actions.
Rest In Peace.
