    A British army medic who put herself in "mortal danger" to treat a wounded Afghan soldier under heavy Taliban fire has been awarded the Military Cross.

    L/Cpl Kylie Watson, from Ballymena, Co Antrim, gave medical care in exposed open ground for 20 minutes.

    Her citation spoke of her "immense courage" and described her as an "inspiration" to her platoon.

    L/Cpl Watson is believed to be only the fourth woman to receive the MC, the third highest award for gallantry.
    Kudos to this brave Ballymena lass.

    Now thats a Brave Soldier.
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

      You don't get an MC for turning up. Well done.


      Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

        In Arduis Fidelis!
        'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
        'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
        Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
        He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.
