    Just a personal opinion, but the citations for Mentions in Despatches often tell stories of exceptional behaviour, frequently overshadowed by higher profile awards.
    Always had much respect for that inconspicuous oakleaf emblem on campaign service medals.

    Also worth noting that the recipient of the George Cross for his involvement in the Nairobi shopping mall attack, was a former Royal Marine, who was awarded the QGM in 1993 and then returned to NI in 2002 as a WO in the Parachute Regiment.

    I would imagine his autobiography would be an inspirational read.
