Military courage recognised by Operational Honours List
A soldier who single-handedly saved Afghan and Danish soldiers from an explosive trap is among those recognised for bravery on operations.
Warrant Officer Class 1 Andy Peat’s story is just one example of the many tales of courage shared as scores of personnel from all 3 Services were honoured at an event which was hosted at the Tower of London yesterday, 3 October.
Peat’s is one of 117 awards for gallantry and meritorious service included in Operational Honours and Awards List 41, which covers the period between September 2012 and April 2013. Many of those recognised served with 4th Mechanized Brigade, which deployed to Afghanistan in the autumn of 2012.
