Lance Corporal Beharry is the first person since 1965 to be awarded the Victoria Cross, Britain's highest award for gallantry, while still living. Born in Grenada, he joined the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment in 2001. He was posted to Iraq in 2004, where he saved the lives of thirty soldiers while under enemy fire. Serious head injuries sustained in Iraq have prevented him from returning to active service.
