    A soldier who lost a leg after rushing to the aid of a colleague who was injured in a minefield in Afghanistan is to receive the George Medal.

    Fusilier Andy Barlow, from Bolton, was one of three men seriously injured in the incident. One soldier later died.

  2. It's good his bravery has been recognised. A man with guts.
  3. Some office! Good lad.

  4. Congratulations to Andy Barlow, another proud day for the cap badge o' heroes.

  5. Can't help but think that for comanding the blokes through all that, Maj Swift should have got something a bit more substatial than a MiD
  6. Pity they don't pulish these stories in the papers, on the front page.
    They are quick enough with the negative, but when it comes down to the nuts and bolts they manage to ignore it.
    Well done to one and all, hope they all come back safe, they all deserve recognition of the sacrifices made.
