A medal awarded to the First World War Doctor, who deliberately stood on a grenade to save his comrades, was sold at auction for £ 22,000.
Corporal Lance James Collins was seriously injured, but he refused to ask the doctor to cut him the right food.
Later, he came to Swansea Football Club and topped the third division.
The story came to light when Collins\'s Albert Medal was sold in London last week.
The Albert Medal is equivalent to the Victoria Cross, and the predecessor of the George Medal is the highest civilian award for bravery.
On November 1917, L/Collins was a doctor serving the Royal Army medical team on the Western Front.
