STEPHENS, Seth Vincent Scott

Cpl Seth Stephens CGC
SBS
Corporal Seph Stephens, S.B.S., died during operations in Southern Afghanistan. He was hit by enemy small arms fire while he was protecting and inspiring his British and Afghan comrades. He made a conscious decision to move to provide more effective covering fire. Moving along what was a very exposed position while under accurate fire, increased the risk to him significantly. This act of selfless bravery, which almost certainly saved the lives of his comrades, was recognised by the posthumous award of the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross.
