    It’s just been announced that a Victoria Cross has been awarded to L/Cpl. Joshua Leakey (Para) for courage displayed in Afghanistan.

    There’s a story on the BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-31626357

    It’s a family thing, he’s a distant relative of Sergeant Nigel Leakey who received a posthumous VC for actions in Africa during WW2.
