Ted Kenna VC

Don't know if this has been covered already, but just read this Gentlemans obituary in the Daily Telegraph.

Talk about b@lls of a lion!!! Rest In Peace SIR.
Balls of steel of steel...but a horrible shot with a Bren gun... :roll:

On his own initiative and without orders, Kenna stood up in full view of the enemy less than 50 yards away and engaged the bunker, firing his Bren gun from the hip. Fire was returned at once, bullets passing between his arms and his body but somehow missing him. Undeterred, Kenna continued to fire at the enemy until his ammunition was exhausted. He then discarded his Bren gun, called for a rifle and despite intense machine-gun fire killed the enemy gunner with his first round.
Another amazing guy sadly passes but glad he enjoyed a full life after all his sacrifices.
