HERO LIAM GETS HIS MEDAL FROM QUEEN
Jul 17 2003
THE youngest squaddie to win the Military Cross was yesterday decorated by the Queen.
Marine Liam Armstrong won the second highest honour for tearing down a wall with his hands to get at nine Taliban guarding an arms cache in Afghanistan.
He forced them to surrender without a shot being fired and held them prisoner until back-up arrived. Marines spokesman Lt Col Ben Curry described his actions as "very brave and a great credit to the corps".
After the investiture at Buckingham Palace, Liam, 23, from Carlisle, said: "Words can't describe how proud I feel." As he left with friends to visit a lap-dancing club, he added: "It's my night and I'm going to enjoy it."
I hope he did - thanks to Ian for pointing me at this story and No, I'm not going to write down his comment.
