Platoon Serjeant Tony Bramham, of 5th Battalion The Rifles (5 Rifles), was awarded with a Mention in Despatches for his courage under enemy fire after he dashed towards the insurgents in an area known as the Devil's Doorstep.

Three soldiers had been killed in the area in the previous three months during 50 improvised explosive device (IED) and grenade attacks.
