Just so the Corps is all informed, Capt Nick Beighton RE will be representing Team GB in the mixed double scull at the forthcoming Paralympic Games.

Nick took up rowing as rehab following injuries sustained in an IED strike in 2009. quickly moving into competitive sport. He is still a serving officerin the Corps. Let's hope for big sapper support to match the Gunners' rowing Gold medal from Heather Stanning!
