Other information
AFPST ASSISTANCE
In May 2018 he credited the Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team [AFPST] with helping him regain direction in his life following his injuries in Afghanistan. "Losing both legs above the knee I never thought I'd be able to seek such a challenge, I was wrong. Thank you to AFPST for helping me regain my focus, direction and outlook. This has been the most positive activity I've participated in and I'm looking forward to what the future may hold, with a lot of hard work and commitment with this great organisation."
