"Very special"

Damn. You just can't tell when tears will spring.

Very gallant gent:

"When a rocket-propelled grenade exploded inches from his head during fighting in Iraq, Private Johnson Beharry, mere 24, sustained life-threatening injuries.

Despite, he saved his buddies by driving his Warrior out of danger before losing consciousness.

For this, and other gallantry, he's one of only 12 to be awarded the Victoria Cross since the Second World War.
