The Queen toured the military's leading rehabilitation centre for injured servicemen and women to learn about their long road back to health.

She was joined by the Duke of Edinburgh and the pair watched as amputee soldiers walked along obstacle courses on artificial legs or got to grips with manoeuvring wheelchairs.

The Queen was making her first visit to Headley Court in Surrey where Britain's battle casualties are sent for intensive rehab once their lives are out of danger.
