A soldier who thought he was going to die after being shot through the neck, but who still picked up his gun and carried on fighting Taliban snipers in Afghanistan for another 90 minutes, is being honoured. 23 year old Lance Corporal Simon Moloney is being awarded alongside his best friend and colleague army medic, Lance Corporal Wes Masters, who ran across open ground under heavy gunfire to rescue his colleague.
