Regrann from @british_army_bjj - Remembering Sergeant Bill Speakman VC, who died at The Royal Hospital Chelsea last night (20 Jun 18). His VC was awarded based on the following account:
On 4 November 1951 in Korea, when the section holding the left shoulder of the company's position had been seriously depleted by casualties and was being overrun by the enemy, Speakman, on his own initiative, collected six men and a pile of grenades and led a series of charges. He broke up several enemy attacks, causing heavy casualties and in spite of being wounded in the leg continued to lead charge after charge. He kept the enemy at bay long enough to enable his company to withdraw safely.
He later served with the Malayan Scouts and 22 SAS, returning to 1KOSB he served in Aden, Radfan and Borneo.
He moved to the Royal Hospital Chelsea in 2015 and became a Chelsea Pensioner. He was much loved and respected by all staff and fellow Chelsea Pensioners and also by all his fellow members of the Victoria Cross and George Cross Association. And all Borderers. #british#army#victoriacross#vc#legend#bjj#jiujitsu#stormkimonos#missionsubmission#ptsd#ptsdawareness#support - #regrann
