Queens Award For Gallantry

#5
I think you'll find it's recipient number 5 in the list.

Well deserved too.

LCpl Timmins himself was severely injured nine days after the incident and credits Captain Wayne Owers, a fellow QGM recipient announced today, for saving his life:

"I swallowed my tongue, had a collapsed lung and my coronary artery was hit," LCpl Timmins explained.

"I was losing a lot of blood but Captain Owers pulled my tongue out of my mouth, sat me up and wacked me on the back several times saying, 'don't die on me'.

"As a result of that I was sick, cleared my airways and was squared away - we laugh about it now and how his unorthodox medical techniques saved my life!"

Now, did the officer pause, pull out his little First Aid book, and work through the triage diagrams?
If not, it sounds like he just failed his MATTS test... :)
