CPL Cameron Stewart Baird VC MG – On 22 June 2013, a Commando Platoon of the Special Operations Task Group conducted an assault into Uruzgan province. After insertion, CPL Baird’s team was engaged from several enemy positions. Corporal Baird quickly seized the initiative, leading his team to neutralise the positions and enabling the assault to continue. An adjacent Special Operations Task Group team came under heavy fire, resulting in its commander being seriously wounded - CPL Baird led his team to provide support. On three separate occasions CPL Baird and his team charged the enemy-held building within the compound with CPL Baird drawing enemy fire away from his team. On the third attempt the enemy was neutralised and the advantage was regained, but CPL Baird was killed in the effort. Lest We Forget
