Bullet removed from leg after 40 years

United Kingdom,Human Interest/Society, Sat, 14 Apr 2012 IANS

London, April 14 (IANS) Former Royal Navy commando Robert Mitchell holds a bullet that was stuck in his leg for 40 years - and he never knew it was there, The Sun reported.


Doctors found the inch-long steel round as Robert, 63, had a routine hernia operation.


The grandad from Dartmouth, Devon, had a nagging pain in his groin for years but did not know why. He believes he may have been shot without realising after being hit by a mortar during covert operations in Vietnam in 1971.


Now the hero - awarded a Distinguished Service Medal for his work in the 1970s - wears it on a chain, the newspaper said Saturday.
