    I served in Iraq with him and he is a top bloke. He recovered a vehicle under fire, cool as you like by all accounts.

    MC

    Corporal Richard Steven STREET, Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers
    Street led the Foden recovery crew in support of B Squadron, King’s Royal Hussars. Whilst under sustained attack in his vehicle he showed personal courage in dismounting and completing a recovery task under fire.

    Lance Corporal Tej Gang SUNWAR, Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers
    Sunwar’s initiative, considerable engineering skills and tireless effort despite considerable personal danger ensured that the highest possible levels of in-mission availability were sustained.

    Tomkins’ amazing presence of mind and resolute action in the face of the enemy not only saved a severely injured colleague, but rescued key battle winning assets.
