Quote
A Scots soldier who risked his life trying to save an injured Danish comrade in Afghanistan has been honoured by Denmark for his courage.

Explosives expert Andy Peat went to the aid of Oversergeant Rene Brink Jakobsen after his patrol was blasted by an improvised explosive device (IED).

The warrant officer class One (WO1), from Edinburgh, disarmed a second IED and lay across the path of another.

He is the first soldier outside Denmark to receive the Anders Lassen Award.

He was presented with the honour by Crown Prince Frederik at a ceremony at the Royal Danish Military College in Copenhagen.

More of the story:

Quote
WO1 Peat is credited with saving the lives of several other Danish soldiers and members of the Afghan police that day.

The Anders Lassen Foundation was established in memory of a highly-decorated soldier who was awarded three Military Crosses and was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross for his exploits in World War II.

WO1 Rene Brink Jakobsen WO1 Rene Brink Jakobsen died later from his wounds
Each year the foundation chooses a single recipient for its honour and cash award, and this year selected WO1 Peat for his "extraordinary courage and determined actions".

At the ceremony in Copenhagen, he received the framed award and donated the 25,000 Krone (about £3,000) to his late colleague's wife, Camilla Brink Jakobsen, and children, Sara, Maja and Thor.

He said of the honour: "I was slightly taken aback when I had the phone call to say I'd been awarded it - it's slightly surreal.

"Meeting the Crown Prince has been a great experience."

The serviceman paid tribute to his own wife following the ceremony and said of his attempt to save WO1 Brink Jakobsen that "all the guys would have done the same thing".

He said: "To bring my wife and daughter along has been fantastic. I knew when my wife heard about what I'd done I'd be mostly in trouble.

"She deserves the rewards as she has to stay up at home at night worrying all the time.
 
"I'd probably say that wives and girlfriends have the worst jobs because they always think we're doing stuff when sometimes we're just sitting around drinking coffee.

"To be honest, it's just about doing your job and thinking about what you've got in front of you and trying your best to get out of that predicament as quickly as possible."

Mrs Brink Jakobsen said: "I was quite overwhelmed that he wanted to give the money to our family.

"I really appreciate what he did in Afghanistan and I'm very grateful that he would think of us in this way.

"Rene was a guy who spread joy everywhere he went and he wanted everyone to be comfortable. He was a very good soldier and good at his work."

Lt Col Claus Wannen, head of the Danish Special Forces, said: "Warrant Officer One Andy Peat made an extraordinary contribution.

"On that tragic day he proved his worth and it's most likely he saved a number of lives that evening."

WO1 Peat, along with the Danish colleagues he served with in Afghanistan, laid a wreath for WO1 Brink Jakobsen in a public area where other fallen Danish soldiers are remembered.

Thanks Jazzy, I looked but couldn't find a post anywhere. Only made the BBC's local pages today, but is being picked up elsewhere.

Fred actually doing something Crown Prince-ly! Who'd have thought?



With the Brink family



With the Peat family.


The Danish court and press need to promote this sort of thing more, and the sports stuff less.

The story is also being covered in the Guardian, Independent, Daily Mail, Telegraph and Mirror. This also means there are pictures of Crown Prince Frederik on every British newspaper site, but none of his wife in Jordan.

Fantastic! Thumb up
Just Google: Andy Peat  + Prince Frederik  and then Crown Princess Mary + Jordan and see how many results you get.

My sentiments exactly, Fred needs to do more stuff like this, and FC you are right, the royal court needs to promote events like this more.

Who knew Fred had it in him to do something useful and important and not make a fool of himself. If he keep this up he might not be a complete washout afterall.

He should probably also drop the food in his left hand and actually pose with the dead soldier's family, but it's all relative with Fred.

Fred sailing in Middlefart:

Quote
'I preferred losing to Nicolai than to my wife 10 years ago. Itís always hard to lose to your wife.

'Itís good to compete and have that tension. Whether you win or lose itís important to do the best you can. Iíd like to have sailed three flights, but unfortunately there wasnít time.

'Iím not so experienced at match racing, I usually do fleet races, but I really enjoyed it.'

'Ah, penalties Ė we didnít have a penalty flag on board or we could have had a penalty back. Itís very good that international sailing comes to Denmark. We have a good track record (for competitions) and we have the weather and currents. Danish waters are known for being challenging.'

~ December 15
Fred participating in Mandela's funeral

Crown Prince representing the Danish royal family at Nelson Mandela's funeral.

When the former South African freedom fighter and President Nelson Mandela will be burried, the Danish royal family will be represented by Crown Prince Frederik, said head of press head of the royal house Lene Balleby to Ekstra Bladet.

The preparations for a state funeral of Nelson Mandela, who died on Thursday night at the age of 95 years old, have already begun.

State and government leaders from around the world, among them U.S. President Barack Obama, are expected to attend. But there are also Royals - including the Danish crown prince.
 
Visited prison cell
In 1996, the royal couple and the Crown Prince were on an official visit to South Africa, and here they visited, among other things, Mandela's prison cell on Robben Island, where the South African was imprisoned for 27 years.
 
Mandela will probably be buried 15 December.

The collection of state and government leaders in South Africa is expected to be one of the biggest since Mandela was sworn in as the first black president in 1994.
 
After the official state funeral in Pretoria, he is sent to the Eastern Cape, where he grew up. He will be buried in a private ceremony in Qunu, a place where his relatives are buried.
