Never flinching from danger - Captain Michael Dobbin and L/Cpl James Ashworth

Grenadier Guards Capt Michael Dobbin, 28, fought his way through a Taliban stronghold where he was being shot at from as little as five yards away, and “never once flinched from danger” as he did so.

He was with Grenadier L/Cpl Ashworth, 23, who has just posthumously received the Victoria Cross. He died to protect his comrades, who were under fierce attack.

So young, so courageous.
