Dave became a triple amputee in 2010 following an IED blast, this didn’t slow him down, just changed his direction.
There wasn’t many boys from Dave’s class in Primary school who can say that they went onto dance with the Queen. Dave did. He joined the Army and was lucky enough to join the world famous Scots Guards.
He went everywhere and did everything with them and was having a blast. But then, on the 27th of May 2010, He had a different sort of a blast. Crossing a river in Helmand, Afghanistan, Dave trod on a bomb which exploded and tore off both legs and his right arm.
Thanks to the incredible medical teams Afghan and back in Britain, he didn’t die. But living became a challenge in itself. People have said that his story of how he went from lying there in that river bleeding to winning a Gold medals at the Invictus Games has inspired them. Dave hope’s that it has and continues to do so. Every aspect of his life is a challenge that he strives to conquer.
