Bloody well done.

That is an ASTONISHING amount of MCs!

Is there any clever historian out there who can compare the levels of fighiting that this represents with, say the Korean War, or any other conflict?

Outstanding!!, not very often you see two of your best mates names on an honours list, an MC and a DFC to boot!!!

Well done to all.

Not clever enough to do it myself but, if anybody does, they should not forget that the vast majority of the MC awards would have been MMs.

Damn well done to all.

Congratulations one and all - outstanding efforts, very well earned!

My thoughts too are with the families of Marine Curry Royal Marines and WOII Smith Royal Regiment of Artillery receiving the awards on behalf of their dead sons.

can anyone here enlighten me as to why the RRF have so few recipients and the Gurkhas none?

If the senior officers don't put the forms in then no recognition is received.

The Royal Marines are obviously keen to see their guys recognised and must have a very well run system for making sure this happens.

Well done to the boys and girls who have been recognised and shame on the seniors who failed to look after the others who no doubt deserved it but didn't get listed.

Well done to everyone and look! A Muslim has won the MC!

When will this blatant appeasement of Islam stop??

It's pandering to the PC brigade!

Joking aside, I really do hope people remember the likes of Captain Ali when mouthing off about Muslims and loyalty.

Also if im not mistaken that's the first time a Muslim has been awarded the MC since WW2.

Taz,

You probably are correct in your assumption that Capt Ali is a muslim but it is an assumption nonetheless. He could be a christian or atheist for all you know (unless you know him personally of course).

Excellent news for all; well done them.
Although rather depressing when you realise that a guy who used to look up to you at school is winning an MiD in Afghanistan! Particularly good to see how many MCs have gone to 'Private' soldiers and JNCOs; good to see the recognition going to those who thoroughly deserve it.
