War Torn Warriors - Sky1 Tue & Wed @ 9pm

#1
Did anyone else see this moving and inspiring doc about a group of Royal Marines trekking in Nepal?

A shining example of courage and determination over adversity.

A group of Britain’s bravest heroes find themselves on the front line of an entirely different battle in this two-part special. An inspiring documentary, War Torn chronicles the experiences of injured British service personnel as they embark on the journey of a lifetime, scaling the Everest region of the Himalayas.

The 80-man Khumbu Challenge expedition recreates a military environment and is part of a five-year initiative to help rehabilitate members of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. Drawing on their courage, these men are determined to overcome their individual adversities, whether it’s the loss of limbs, a facial disfigurement or mental trauma. And although not everyone will complete this arduous task, the solidarity between this band of brothers is awe inspiring.

Ugh, forgot to ask Sis to record this for me (I don't have Sky) - does anyone know if it'll be repeated?
Sky have the tendency to repeat docs like this several times over, usually on Sky2 etc.

Mrs JD couldn't get over their positive attitudes and remarked that a civvy who's had no connection with the Forces would be gobsmacked at their piss-taking attitude towards each other.
Chuckled at the bit where they amputated Ben McBeans bollock and they remarked that he'd probably raffle it to raise money!
Well done Royals!

Saw this tonight on Sky 3. The room was a bit dusty at times! Hats off to the Royals on their determination, grit and courage! From an ex-ARAB to all the Royals - you do your country and your Corps proud!
