Wayne Marques, the incredibly brave off-duty British Transport policeman who fought off the three London Bridge terrorists deserves the highest possible award for his bravery in the face of mortal danger.
Mr Marques displayed incredible courage trying to defend the public against the three Jihadist terrorists in the London Bridge attack. They were armed with knives, while Mr Marques only had his baton.
His selfless act resulted in him being stabbed multiple times and being blinded in one eye. He now fears he may not be able to return to the job he loves.
I will shortly be writing to her Majesty the Queen to ask her to award Mr Marques with the George Cross.
The George Cross was of course created by her father King George V in 1940, and is the highest civilian award for gallantry. It is the civilian equivalent of the Victoria Cross.
I will let you know what Her Majesty says in reply.
Apart from the medal he so richly deserves, Mr Marques should get whatever material assistance he needs for the injuries he received, and for what affect they may have on his life.
