After pulling a trip wire whilst on patrol in Afghanistan, Lance Corporal Matthew Croucher lay backwards on the grenade and his life and his comrades lives were saved as his patrol pack took most of the explosion.

The George Cross is one down from the Victoria Cross.

Here's the news report plus full BBC video.

Actually, it isn't it's equal; but the VC is awarded in the face of the enemy, IIRC.

Plus Mark....if the VC was on the table, then he'd have 'had' to have died in the process! :rolleyes:
