RAF Regiment man Sergeant Roy Geddes, 43, of Elgin, Monmouthshire, who played a key role in the defence of Camp Bastion, the main British base in Afghanistans Helmand province, and is to receive the Military Cross.
At just after 2200 hours on 14 September 2012 a well-armed 15-man insurgent team breached the perimeter fence, launching a battle that would last until dawn. Sergeant Geddes heard the gunfire and explosions and immediately responded amid the chaos of a ferocious battle, leading a twelve-man team in Jackal armoured vehicles.
According to his citation, Sergeant Geddes breathed fire into the spirit of his men, despite being wounded in the knee when one of his vehicles was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade.
