LONDON (AFP) â€“ A Nepalese soldier in the British army has been given a top bravery award by Queen Elizabeth II for his heroics in Afghanistan, where he single-handedly saw off more than 30 Taliban fighters.
Corporal Dipprasad Pun, 31, said he thought he was going to die and so had nothing to lose in taking on the attackers who overran his checkpoint.
He was awarded the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross (CGC), which is given in recognition of acts of conspicuous gallantry during active operations against the enemy.
Pun fired more than 400 rounds, launched 17 grenades and detonated a mine to repel the Taliban assault on his checkpoint near Babaji in Helmand Province, southern Afghanistan, last September.
Amazing Providence: WCF Answer to Q #11. A - God's works of providence are his most holy wise and powerful preserving and governing all his creatures and all their actions.
I'll say. "Pun fired more than 400 rounds, launched 17 grenades and detonated a mine to repel the Taliban assault on his checkpoint" and "At one point, unable to shoot, he used his machine gun tripod to knock down a militant who was climbing the walls of the compound. Two insurgents were still attacking by the time he ran out of ammunition, but he set off a Claymore mine to repel them."
But sadly instead of praising God he then says "After that I thought nobody can kill us now -- when we met the enemy I wasn't scared." Apparently he was before that time and His Creator helped him!!! What an Omnipotent, Omnipresent Elohim!!!
