Thank God they are on our side

The British sent out some guys to track down a Taliban warlord.

Having identified their target, a fierce battle ensued during which the warlord was killed. To prove that they had got their man, the Gurkhas attempted to remove the body for identification. Further enemy fire necessitated a fast exit minus corpse. So, an unnamed soldier drew his kukri ...  removed the man's head and legged it.

Showing superlative initiative, attention to detail, quick thinking under pressure.

Captain said he wanted positive ID, he's darn well gonna get it.
