    It is good to see that the bravery of others involved in this incident receive just recognition:

    A Royal Marine from Somerset West in Cape Town has been awarded a military cross after saving the lives of five colleagues when he faced down and killed a rogue gunman. Marine Craig Buchanan, 26, was serving with 40 Commando Royal Marines in Nehr-e-Saraj when he was confronted with a rogue Afghan policeman who began shooting at the eight-man patrol, killing two and badly wounding another.

    Nearly a year has passed.

    RIP Dave & Channing.
