    I always like that the British lads never really look like super macho soldiers just normal people :)


    Good on him :D

    Just pulling the pin, cooking and lobbing a nade is scary enough (no, thats not a cod experience, thats real), but picking one up and throwing it back? Christ....
    .....top man!

    Run?

    instinctively drop to the floor and cover head?


    It takes balls to run at a grenade rather than away, especially when you have , what less than 3 seconds to close the gap and throw it.

    What if you stumble or it goes off when you pick it up?




    There was the guy last year who dived on a grenade fro ma booby trap, destroyed his back pack and armour (he sort of went on his back pushing it onto the corner between the wall and the floor).

    Got the George cross and saved his mates lives.


    That's gotta be terrifying though, those few seconds where you are lying on the grenade waiting for it to go off :(


    Being able to have the reasoning to do anything other than leg it/ just stare dumbly at a grenade is pretty impressive tbh.

    Taliban man should have cooked the grenade, silly noob.
