Injured Welsh soldier takes on 1,000-mile charity walk

A soldier from Wales is among a group of injured servicemen and women who will take part in a 1,000-mile walk around the UK this summer.

Former Royal Welsh commander Lt Col Stewart Hill suffered a traumatic brain injury after an explosion in Afghanistan in 2009.

The trek will be in aid of the charity Walking With The Wounded and was launched by the charity's Patron Prince Harry earlier today.

Prince Harry: 'It's easy to forget who I am in the Army'

For the last 20 weeks Prince Harry has been working as a co-pilot gunner in attack helicopters.

The 28-year-old, known to colleagues as 'Captain Wales', said: "It's easy to completely forget about who I am when I'm in the Army. Everyone's wearing the same uniform and doing the same kind of thing."

Now a fellow soldier from Bridgend, who has been flying alongside him, has backed this up - saying the Prince is 'just one of the team' when he's serving.

Forces charity wants a Welsh face for Everest trek

The charity Walking With the Wounded is looking for a Welsh man or woman to join its team as part of an expedition to Mount Everest aimed at raising £2 million.

The organisation - which boasts Prince Harry as its patron - wants to involve a representative from each of the four home nations in its fundraising effort.

Walking With the Wounded is aiming to be the first team of wounded ex-service people to climb Everest.

It works with ex-servicemen and women to re-train and re-equip them to cope with their injuries.
