    A ******* QCB for giving his life, bloody disgraceful especially when you know the HQ element would be falling over themselves to be written up for MBEs etc.

    Apparantly dealing with a device with the minimum of equipment and often in a TIC is rarely considered gallant. They have shown scantvrespect for Dan and what he did.

    He was Oz's No2. He deserved more than a QGM. If you knew thw full story you'd agree.

    Sprucey the great lumox, is a good lad always in bother (remind you of anyone?), he got knocked on his arse when I got hit (he was only about 5m away) and still returned to the scene later to exploit it. I thought that was very mature and professional.

    Dinger, duty rumour has it that he went looking for your wallet, but he didn't realise that a piece of shrapnel had gouged a large enough hole in it to allow the resident moth to stick it's wings out and get airborne........You can keep your money, but you'll never take it's freeeeeedom!

    Stout fella....the beer's on Dingerr Sir..... :)
     
  13. I agree - he probably fell foul of some arcane rule that says you can't have any of the other medals posthumously. Kinda like the VC/GC or MID but nothing in between. Daft isn't it?
