Happy hunting mate!
The British sniper who has 47 kills: Colour sergeant takes out ISIS suicide bombers in Iraq – and has even shot dead an Islamist insurgent from 1,650 yards away
In his latest mission, the Colour Sergeant – who is one of the UK’s deadliest trained killers and cannot be named – is defending 250 British troops from an attack by Islamic State in Iraq.
Positioned on a roof top, he is waiting for a jihadist to approach the heavily-fortified base in Anbar province, western Iraq, and with a pull of the trigger he will shoot them dead.
He cannot be named – as he and his family have received multiple threats from terrorists – but he is the first line of defence if any gun-toting militants driving suicide bomb trucks approach the gates.
The sniper from 4 Rifles once killed an insurgent with a single shot 1,431 metres away, and racked up the highest number of deaths during Operation Herrick in Afghanistan.
He said: ‘We would be the first ones to shoot if someone comes near us. Nobody has dared yet while we’ve been here.’
