Totally Badass Sergeant Kept Fighting Taliban With Shrapnal In His Head

The Black Night says “it’s just a flesh wound”

A BLACK Watch sergeant with red-hot shrapnel in his head continued directing a gun battle with the Taliban – from his STRETCHER.

Courageous dad-of-three Eddie Nichol, 37 – pouring with blood after two comrades were killed in an ambush – refused to be evacuated as his men fought back.

He kept drilling his troops on how to combat the enemy even though he lay in agony from the deadly shrapnel embedded an inch inside his brain.

And, if that wasn’t awesome enough

Last night the hero praised his 29-strong platoon as he said proudly: “I know the lads were able to take out some of the Taliban.” His only regret was that he could not be sure they got the one who fired a rocket-propelled grenade that blew up him and his comrades while on patrol in Afghanistan’s Helmand province.

Instead of making it all about himself, he made it about his mates.
