Captain Michael Dobbin, 28, from the Grenadier Guards has been awarded a military cross after he personally led a 200m charge at insurgents in Nahr-e-Saraj in Afghanistan last summer.
Captain Dobbin was on the same patrol as Lance-Corporal James Ashworth, of the First Battalion, The Grenadier Guards, who became the first recipient of the Victoria Cross since 2006 after being awarded it posthumously last week.
