Can anyone out in the big world of Artillery confirm this quote from a certain RSM in current post:

"He is going round saying he stepped on a anti personnal mine on Ops..

The mine jumped up from the ground and using his awesum reactions.. (my a*se!) he spun around and did a Mark Hughes type volley to clear the mine before it set off".... now call me old fashioned, but me thinks he may be talking out of his a*se... anyone shed any light on this remarkable act of heroism...???

I know pretty much nothing about anti personnel mines, but had he kicked it (I don't think even Bruce Lee could do that) surely he couldn't have kicked it far enough away before it exploded as to not catch any frag? If someone told me they did that in the pub i'd be laughing for hours.

Anti personnel mines in a pub? Was it the Miners Arms? :)

I can confirm that that is NOT being banded around RA Bks regarding RSM 14. I can only assume that the person who has told you this has issues with said badge.
