any chance you could take 2 mins to sign this.

what you are not told on the petition page is that Stewart was actually put forward for the VC, and that his actions were worthy of a double VC.

See here for more details...

‘At one point he ran forward under fire to pull a wounded man back into cover by grabbing his webbing [a waistband with storage pouches], his example reassuring those around him that he did not seem fazed by anything and if they too were hit he would get them back to relative safety,’ writes Sir Hew.

‘McLaughlin realised that it was only a matter of time before they incurred more casualties so he shouted, “I’ll count one, two, three, then we all go.”
'About a minute later he did the countdown and shouted, “Come on lads, I’m bulletproof, follow me!”
‘He then ran forward towards the gunfire, followed by the rest of the section, who all reached the cover of the rocks unscathed. Members of the section commented later that it was the bravest thing they had ever seen.




Thanks

Stewart 'Scouse' McLaughlin, a Liverpudlian corporal, was an archetypal Green Eye. A brilliant and unconventional tactical soldier, apparently impervious to pain or exhaustion, he was both admired and feared by his men. When McLaughlin cut an arm open in the course of a field exercise, provided an opportunity for the section to practise wound-suturing on him. '. . . And if it wasn't neat,' remembers the ex-squaddie, 'he'd ******* have you do it again.'


Stuart 'Scouse' McLaughlin, the hardest and wildest of the Green-Eyed Boys, was among the dead. Despite a grave back wound exposing both his spine and his lungs, he had refused to leave the battlefield and his men, and had continued to fight, finally to be killed by a direct hit from a mortar round.
