Pun’s Conspicuous Gallantry Cross

Love it. One soldier holds off an attack from 30 taliban fighters, saving the lives of his fellow soldiers. And he comes through unscathed.

He has received Britain’s second-highest award for bravery, the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross. Wow. How would you like to have that hanging on your Class A’s or Sunday Best? Cool beans.

This just goes to show — when it’s not your time, it’s not your time. I have read other stories about leaders in battle in times past that would walk through withering fire to inspire their men, and nothing hit them. The story says Pun was under constant fire throughout the battle, and even used his rifle tripod to keep the guys away from his position.

Wow, what a stud.

Acting Sgt. Dipprasad Pun of the Royal Gurkha Rifles

    Complete and total rock star. Unbelievable. Also proof that when it’s time to fight lots of people, grenades are your friend.

      Yeah. I bet grenades are your best friend in those situations.

      I am not looking for it, but it would be very interesting to have a chance to prove yourself in something like that.
