I know we have rules about in the face of the enemy etc but I read this on todays post from Mr Free Market:
Serious stuff no doubt but would he get the award today?1941: Second Lieutenant Premindra Singh Bhagat of the Royal Bombay Sappers & Miners began a remarkable four-day mine-clearing effort in Abyssinia as British and Indian troops pursued retreating Italian forces. He and his men cleared mines along some 55 miles of tracks. His Bren Gun carrier was twice knocked out by mines, he was also ambushed, and one of his ear-drums was shattered by an explosion. Nevertheless, he continued to lead tirelessly from the front, and was awarded the Victoria Cross.
