UK Armed Forces In Afghanistan Honoured For Bravery ...


A teenager who seized a Taliban leader and a man who neutralised 42 bombs in 72 hours are among scores of UK service personnel to be honoured for gallantry.

A total of 131 members of the armed forces are to be awarded medals in the latest Operational Awards List.

Most medals, to be presented by senior royals at a later date, will go to soldiers from 11 Light Brigade - the UK's lead formation in Afghanistan.

Full list of awards from the MOD site is here.
