Winner

At first light on Armistice Day 2011 British troops are dropped by helicopter deep inside Taliban country in southern Afghanistan. Within an hour one soldier would lose both his legs to an IED and his fellow soldiers would have to carry him to safety under fire from insurgent sharpshooters. Pte Stephen Bainbridge survived his injuries and is still undergoing extensive treatment in the UK
