On tour in Afghanistan, Lawrence Kayser and Anthony Etheridge did everything together.

Both Lance Corporals with The 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, Anthony was there when Lawrence stormed a Taliban compound.

He did it despite being blasted in the arm by a grenade, risking his life to save his platoon from danger. He's been awarded the Military Cross for his courage.

Now the friends, who grew up close to each other in Norfolk, are taking on a new project - rebuilding a historic second world war Jeep
