Travelling home last night on the tube I read the above story in the London Evening Standard. It just struck me as typical of the understated and, in many places, unappreciated, day-to-day courage and professionalism of the guys out there. This chap was shop through his neck, the bullet just missing his spine and major blood vessels, and, for a while, he continued trying to direct his blokes. Once recovered (which thankfully it appears he soon will be) he intends to rejoin his unit in Afghanistan. I can't find the report on the Evening Standard website but there is a prÃ©cis of it in the Mail. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1254864/Miracle-Helmand-soldier-survives-shot-neck-sniper.html Perhaps it is no big deal but, for me, it just spoke volumes of the quality of guys (and girls) out there. Respect and good luck to him.
