He promised us there'd be more to come - now a soldier who lost both his legs in a Taliban explosion has delivered on that promise with another amazing feat.
Cayle Royce has become the first double amputee to fly a solo powered paraglider from John O'Groats to Lands End.
The Lance Corporal, who's originally from South Africa but now lives in Devon, had only just received his British passport, when he took part in the expedition.
It's the next in a long line of achievements - which included rowing the Atlantic as part of the Row2Recovery team.
Cayle spoke to ITV News West Country about what drove him both before and after the devastating explosion in Afghanistan.
It was led by Alex Ledger, the managing director of Wiltshire-based Adventure Sports company SkySchool which taught him how to fly last year.
But there's no resting on their laurels for this team. They're off on another flying expedition soon, this time to the Somme Battlefields as part of another Help For Heroes supported trip
