Warrant Officer Class 1 Patrick Hyde from Cheltenham was blown up 17 times in Afghanistan and Iraq, but casually shakes it off as an "occupational hazard".
The soldier, nicknamed the 'Bomb Magnet' for his encounters with IEDs and missiles received the Military Cross today at Buckingham Palace.
"There's no lucky charms, when you operate in Sangin, as I have done, it becomes a bit of an occupational hazard up there. I'm just fortunate enough that I've survived."
He was recognised last July for his bravery when he entered a compound where he feared there were IEDs - to rescue his commanding officer.
"He entered into a compound which had significant battle damage on it and I know the tell-tale signs of where IEDs are planted by insurgents and I wanted him out of there and the only way I could get him out of there was to go in and get him."
On his rescue mission an Afghan soldier stepped on an IED right in front of him - losing a leg. Warrant Officer Hyde arranged for troops to be rescued while lying injured on the ground.
"My family don't want me to go back"
