BRIT MARINE CHEATS DEATH




A Royal Marine Commando who was shot in the head four times has lived to tell the tale of his lucky escape.

Eric Walderman's life was saved by his tough Kevlar helmet after he was caught in enemy gun sights during a savage firefight in Umm Qasr.


The four bullets ripped through the outer camouflage of the 25-year-olds' standard-issue helmet but were stopped by the ultra-tough protective Kevlar shell.

Just an inch lower and the father-of-one could have joined the list of British casualties.

His relieved partner, Lindsey Robinson, 25, at home with their son, Danny, two, said: "I can't believe it. He is so lucky to be alive. He's the luckiest man out there. I'm just so glad he's still alive."

Marine Walderman is part of 40 Commando's Alpha Company.

Apparently, he's heard of some good advice & followed it: "Keep your head down & your powder dry". As stated earlier & shown in the pic, if his head had been up another inch...

At least in the US military, they issue all new recruits with at least 10 pairs of undershorts...I don't know about the Brits.
