Matt Croucher, Royal British Legion - Authors


Lance Corporal Matt Croucher GC grew up in Solihull and joined the Royal Marines aged 16, passing through the legendary 32-week training programme and into 40 Commando despite a series of injuries. He served two tours with the Marines in Iraq before becoming a reservist and returning to Iraq as a private security contractor with the United Nations. He re-joined the Royal Marines for the ultimate challenge of a tour of duty in war-torn Afghanistan in September 2007. Five months later he faced down death by diving on a trip-wired grenade to save the lives of his men. Awarded the George Cross, his incredible story of heroism has features in newspapers, TV and radio shows around the world. He is a key member of the ambassadorial team for the RBL and will undertake all PR on their behalf.
