Sergeant 'Scruff' McGough
(Filed: 24/06/2006)

Sergeant Paul "Scruff" Mcgough, who has died aged 41, was a member of the Special Boat Service unit which took part in the siege of Qala-i-Janghi, Afghanistan, one of the most highly decorated missions in the recent history of the British special forces

Using only Leatherman handtools, McGough and a comrade stripped two general purpose machine-guns (known as "jimpies") from their vehicle mountings and carried them with ammunition to the ramparts.
Nice free advert for Leatherman there!

What a brave man.
RIP Sgt.
A man like that makes me proud to be British.
