War Medic Hero

Length: 259 pages4 hours


Pierre Naya was awarded the Military Medal for his extraordinary bravery and courage while serving as a medic in the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) in the Falklands War in 1982, when he worked heroically to help critically-injured soldiers, despite his own severe injuries, after the devastating bombing of the Sir Galahad. Pierre was a larger-than-life character, a ‘brave, charismatic, popular, yet humble man... who was revered as an iconic figure within our regiment’s history’ in the words of Colonel Jim Ryan.
