Marine Jack Cooper.

Jack Cooper was one of the servicemen seriously injured when four of his colleagues were killed at the Shatt al-Arab, Basra, Iraq. Marine Cooper is now out of intensive care. His local paper, the Oldham Advertiser, has an account of the horrific injuries the 19 year-old Marine suffered and the extensive treatment he has already endured. It is not known when Marine Cooper will finally leave hospital but it will be well into next year.

The Daily Mail reports that despite the pain, Marine Cooper still made it to the funeral of Corporal Ben Nowak, who as killed in the attack. Metro News also carries the story.

We can only wish Marine Cooper all the best for the future.
