An elite SAS soldier cut off an ISIS fighter's head with a spade after he ran out of ammunition during a bloody six-hour battle, it was claimed.
After killing the jihadist, the British sergeant used the enemy's gun to kill more militants.
The brutal battle is said to have occurred six weeks ago in war-torn Afghanistan.
The British special forces unit was ambushed by ISIS gunmen and took refuge in a farm where the soldiers fended off the insurgents with their rifles and anything at hand, it was reported.

Hand that man his “Certified Badass” card.
Too good for the Islamic State fanatic. Should have had his head half chopped off, and left to contemplate his fate.
Good for him!
The UK should replace the royal family with this guy.
No kidding. He as a couple drinks headed his way when he get’s home.
No, the royal family is OK, does its job as figureheads of state.
Replace Teresa May. If Maggie Thatcher was the “iron lady,” May seems to be made out of English toffee.
An American soldier doing this 15 months ago would have been arrested and received a lengthy prison sentence.
I’ll bet here will come those human rights and lawyer goons to prosecute that SAS soldier for violating his human right to a fair trial.
Maybe the Spetsnaz had it right, all along?
Also, his Hardcore Award!
Men like this are excellent re a couple of dimensions:
1. Resourceful: When the plans from above and turn to you know what. They use what is available to win!
2. Optimistic: They never give up and find different ways to win. See #1 above.
Gotta do what you gotta do.
This was one-on-one survival. The idea is not to die for your flag and country, but force the other SOB to die for HIS flag and country.
Medieval knights had nothing on this fellow. Codes of “ethical” warfare be damned.
Gun’s for killin’.
Shovel is for choppin’ heads.
I can dig it.
I hope he haunts their every moment, that he inspires voters.
There is no more effective hand-to-hand close-combat weapon than an entrenching tool.
