Kiwi soldier in Afghanistan awarded VC

A New Zealand SAS corporal has been awarded the Victoria Cross after carrying an injured colleague through enemy fire in Afghanistan.

Corporal Bill Apiata, known as Willy, joins an elite club in receiving the medal. Very elite, since World War II the only way to qualify for a VC was to die in the process. The fact that he is still alive is a testament to his heroism.
