Care for Casualties

06 October 2014

To Winchester to interview Lieutenant-Colonel Mike Smith for our Jubilee Sailing Trust movie. Mike runs ‘Care for Casualties’, which looks after injured servicemen from The Rifles., who are always in the front line when things get rather loud and full of bangs. That also means they’ve had their full share of casualties. Mike’s organization looks after those who’ve taken a hit for us – and he’s helped a lot of injured guys go to sea with the Trust, including Kyle Baker (October 2nd blog.) Heaving with rain so we film inside the regimental museum at the barracks. Interesting, go visit if you’re down that way.

P.S. If you need the loo at the museum, you’re directed “through the First World War” (!) They mean their WWI display but just for a moment you think you might give nature’s call a miss!!
