One of our patients, Lance Bombadier Ben Parkinson MBE, famous for being Britain’s most injured surviving serviceman, is training for his next challenge. “Operation Frankton” He is leading a team of disabled and able bodied servicemen in a 75 mile canoe trip along the Garrone River to Bordeaux. This event is for the Pilgrim Bandits charity, which Ben supports by his activities.

This is to commemorate the Cockleshell heroes. Churchill said that their efforts shortened the 2nd world war by six months.
