Inspirational – Harry’s Mountain Heroes


Like Harrys Arctic Heroes this new documentary follows a team of five soldiers, who were wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, as they take on one of the world’s toughest challenges. It follows the team as they attempt to climb to the summit of Mount Everest. Once again this expedition is supported by patron and friend Prince Harry.

Each of the team members has suffered significant damage to their bodies, some have lost parts of limbs or have, due to nerve damage, lost use of limbs. These injuries only serve to make the already demanding task even more of a challenge and this documentary shows the team dealing with altitude, temperatures, night climbs, avalanches and hair-raising ladder crossings over crevasses.

Given the sacrifices that these guys have made for this country and the months of rehabilitation each has endured one can only be amazed at their individual tenacity and strength of will.

Captains Martin Hewitt and David Wiseman, Pivates Jaco van Gass and Karl Hinett, and Doctor Francis Atkinson I salute you. You are an inspiration to us all.

    • Too true. These guys, and those from the previous arctic program, do show an uncommon level of focus and determination. I wish I had even a small amount of the courage that they display.
