Britain's most highly decorated soldier

Mick Flynn is Britain's most highly decorated serving soldier with 30 years' experience of major warzones. Three decades after he fought in the Falklands, he is about to be redeployed to Afghanistan as one of the most experienced members of the armed forces. He'll command an armoured vehicle in a frontline combat role, which is highly unusual. His son will also be entering the services at the same time.
