A double-leg amputee has thanked the poppy appeal for sponsoring the centre which fitted him with his artificial limbs.
Clive Smith, who was part of the Royal Engineer Search Team, spoke to Good Morning Britain about how he lost both of his legs after an IED exploded while he was serving in Afghanistan in 2010.
Clive spent five days in critical care in the UK before he was well enough to be transferred to Headley Court.
He said the threat of losing limbs to an IED was "an occupational hazard" but he wrote it off as "a very hard day".
The former bomb disposal soldier explained: "It's humbling to know that the centre has been created because of the public's generous support of the Legion, and the Poppy Appeal in particular. Without it, the Legion would not be able to help guys like me, as well as people who have left service and their families."
The limbs gave him "a little bit of freedom" to allow him to everything he used to do but at "a much slower pace".
Tesco chief executive Dave Lewis has insisted the company will recover from "real challenges" to become "the best supermarket for customers" once more.
