British Marine Samuel Giles William Alexander survives a gunshot to the head thanks to his helmet.
Sadly, he would later die in Afghanistan, earning Britons top honor, the Victoria Cross, while valiantly defending his platoon by firing every piece of ammo he could find. When he ran out of bullets, he picked up the next gun he saw on the ground and continued fighting. His bravery saved the lives of two of his wounded men. https://www.gov.uk/government/fatalities/lieutenant-oliver-richard-augustin-and-marine-samuel-giles-william-alexander-mc-killed-in-afghanistan
