L/Cpl Johnson Beharry VC

#1
As a mediocre soldier surrounded by other medicore soldiers
during my short stint. I always had admiration for anyone who went beyond the call of duty and like most of you on here was fascinated
with L/Cpl Johnson Beharry's exploits that saved the life of most of his
platoon, earning him a well desrved VC.

Doesn't matter what colour you are though. If you are not white
whatever you do will not be good enough for some! Even if this indigenous
white Englishman thinks the SA80 is a dual carrigeway bypassing
Scarborough.

This prat thinks he is the voice of the 'white soldiers' I think it would
be a good idea if serving and ex serving white soldiers told this prick what we think of him. Or not?

Although its annoying that idiots like this continue to prove they know nothing about what they are talking about, it doesn't matter much as we will always respect and value Johnson Beharrys actions and well deserved recognition.

Mind you i'd still like THEM to go round and sort that little out

The individual questions that he asks may be valid questions in light of the case of the Met police officer last year who was promoted because of his race in spite of his lack of training and development but I somehow do not think he is asking these questions for that reason.

His theme seems to be "Why has this chap with dark skin been promoted/rewarded when most of the country are white?"

As this is his main thrust I would suggest that he is at best trying to use these cases to establish the existance of a conspiracy of racial profiling across the C of E and the Army and perhaps beyond.

I think the gentleman may not realise that the deluded days of brave English officers supported by taciturn Jock sergeants conquering the dark chappies were left behind before Lego overtook Meccano and that the reality is ability, bravery and loyalty to your comrades are not and never have been determined by skin colour.

I would recommend ignoring the silly man.

I dont like this thread....from what I see it is saying Beharry was given the VC because he is black. This is serous racist sh*t that has no place in the modern Army.

As to his comments, come on, when I was his age and if I was suddenly thrown into the TV limelight and given almost celeb status I am sure that I would have come out with some bone comments which would have been put in my mouth by some cleaver and leading journo' (wouldn't happen now of course coz i'm mature and wise.... :wink: )

I really dont like all this BNP crap on this site which is appearing lately, if it continues I could see ARRSE getting some bad press as being Neo's - something which my grandfather and many other members of my family fought sixy years ago to get rid of.

Private Beharry carried out two individual acts of great heroism by which he saved the lives of his comrades.

Both were in direct face of the enemy, under intense fire, at great personal risk to himself (one leading to him sustaining very serious injuries
Private Beharry carried out two individual acts of great heroism by which he saved the lives of his comrades. (source b.b.c.)

This is the reason L/cpl Beharry was given the V.C and nothing else
if fact i think he is quite a handsome chap :D

I dont really like this thread on here either & it was a mistake putting the link on in the first place. There are other sites etc for this but while we are still allowed to have an opinion before the pc labour loonies completely eradicate this privalige this person has that right. I think his comments were misguided in this instance but I get annoyed at similar things such as how come there is an association of black or muslim police officers, prison officers, firemen etc? To try and start any white association you would immediately be branded a racist thug and stuck all over the BBC.

If anything, this discussion will motivate people to start picking this apart and looking at the finer details of his website. I don't believe ignoring it and hoping it'll go away will work. Like any bully, this bloke needs someone bigger before he'll listen to reason.

Beharry is black ? well blow me down .. I've got a red car and a green car , inside they are both the same and work the same way , bet you any money you like if we open me up ( again ) I'll have all the same workings as this fine young man has, apart from my lack of bottle that is.

What a load of racist dross.

what grips my sh*t about BNP supporters like this is the way they pass thier own narrow and racist addenda as true 'patriotism', with no room for any considereration or tolerance of others views.
the way they try and justify thier racism with long winded highly spun alarmist propaganda, when they havent got the real balls just to come out with what they truly belive, which is the simplistic 'nig*ers/go*ks/p*kis OUT!' mentality.

its ba*terds like this who led the german people to disaster and ruin.
just another sensationalist bigot that feeds on the ignorance of the uneducated and burrberry unwashed.

nazi cu*t.

L/Cpl Johnson Beharry VC is a true son of the Empire.
He came from a commonwealth nation to join the 'old countrys' military, to better himself, and to do what he considered a patrotic act.
we need more like him from the 'colonys'.
Beharry is the true hero and patriot here.

edited to add last paragraph.

I would love to take these BNP tw*ts to the Commonwealth War Cemetary in Monte Casino, Italy and you will see row after row of grave from soldiers around the old Empire. It includes a small Hindu temple as these guys were key to storming the mountain (Indian Mountain Bde).

So what would mr thicko with his BNP views be on this I wonder? what would he say to the sons and grandchildren of these fallen soldiers?

This link is going off-piste and is becoming racially focussed because a black guy got the VC. My Dad knew a VC holder and he admits that in peace-time he was a complete nightmare, but you had to respect him for that moment in his life when he did something most of us could, or would not do. e should not focus on the soldier now but on what he did on OP TELIC.

Lastly, I remeber a letter from some Padre who said that he was struggling with his bags in the Union Jack Club and loads of sqaddies ignored him, until a young black guy came over and helped him with his bags to his room - later the Padre realised it was Beharry - not that bad a bloke then!

One or two have misread the first post. As I see it they are highlighting this Sh*t site so that we can enlighten the knob.

Having read some of the drivel the gaps are quite clear.

They are saying that Johnson Beharry was the only soldier who has served in the British Army during the last 23 years who was deserving of a Victoria Cross and that no soldier, who managed to survive his heroic efforts, has performed with such courage and determination for thirty-six years.
VCs are only awarded in wartime, we have not been at war that often in the last 50 years.

The George Cross is the equivalent (same as) the VC but awarded for civilian acts of bravery that would normally warrant a VC but were not due to enemy action.
"The highest award for acts of conspicuous gallantry performed by men or women when not in the face of the enemy"
http://www.gc-database.co.uk/

So it would be correct to say that Trooper Christopher Finney negates his argument. There are another 40 odd in the last 50 years without including the RUC.

The government does not normally put forward individuals for award it is the responsibility of the CO.

Recommendations for honours and awards for acts of gallantry or for meritorious service are made by commanding officers. The commanding officer writes a citation nominating the individual, and this recommendation is then passed up the military chain of command for consideration.
http://www.operations.mod.uk/honours/honours.htm

It must also be of great concern to this mong that the last living recipient of the award was a Ghurkha!

Is the Defence Department seriously saying that not one of the 8,500 or so white, British lads who have seen heavy duty action in Iraq, have as courageous a CV as Johnson?
I also note that only men, or should I say BOYS, have served in Iraq. It does not serve his agenda to point out that a large number of women are on the front line as well. It may encroach on his manhood.

And when did we get a defence department?

He also fails to mention that 1PWRR also received a number of other wards during this time.
