Lance Corporal Shaun Miller Kober

Citation accompanying the award of Commendation For Brave Conduct to L/CPL Kober


For acts of gallantry in action during October 2010 and January 2011 while a sniper team second-in-command in Mentoring Team Four Three Bravo, Combat Team Delta, the 2nd Mentoring Task Force in Chora, Baluchi Valley, Afghanistan.

On two occasions, Lance Corporal Kober displayed outstanding gallantry and disregard for his own safety to come to the aid of his fellow team members. Without hesitation, he moved under fire to provide immediate medical treatment, then engaged the enemy with suppressing fire while the casualties were moved to positions of relative safety. His actions were instrumental in Mentoring Team Four Three Bravo being in a position to manoeuvre against the enemy and regain the initiative.
