CPL Ryan James AVERY

Citation accompanying the award of Medal For Gallantry to
CPL Ryan Avery.

For acts of gallantry in action in hazardous circumstances on 4 December 2010 while a sniper team member in Mentoring Task Force - Two on Operation SLIPPER in Afghanistan.

Corporal Avery is an exemplary soldier whose courage and selflessness under fire allowed the safe withdrawal of his patrol in the face of significant enemy forces.

His fearless action in repeatedly exposing himself to enemy fire to better engage his opponents and protect the lives of his patrol mates was an inspiration to all.
