They also met many of the patients, like Major ***** of the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment who was given a five per cent chance of survival after coming under fire from a Rocket Propelled Grenade launcher (RPG) in Basra, southern Iraq in 2004.
Describing the long process of recovery, with injuries to his hand, shoulder, chest and eye, he said after the meeting:
"You just get used to it. When I was first injured and first came round, I think as a defence mechanism, I assumed I would be well within a number of weeks.
"As time goes on you realise that it is more serious than you first think and you just get used to it."
But thanks to help from the centre Major ***** said he hopes one day to be able to give up 'flying a desk' and get back to an operational role.
