Just read the thing. Shock horror, another Booty. Is this another instance where Royal has bluffed his way into the press? Like the last chap that banged a couple of rounds into his own lid to make a story?

The Booty says that the helmet saved his life....errrr no it didnt, if the bullet had hit it and bounced off, then yes, but it didnt. It missed him completely (by a knats chuff maybe) but still missed, he just managed to get his chin strap in the way.

Being a commando does not make a pongo a Royal Marine.

Either way, he's still a lucky ******.
