Battle Back: new Defence programme to help wounded troops

Identify, facilitate and encourage adaptive Adventurous Training (AT) and Sport opportunities for wounded Service personnel. That's the aim of the new tri-Service initiative officially launched yesterday. The Battle Back programme, first trialled back in March under the leadership of Army Lieutenant Colonel Fred Hargreaves in conjunction with the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) Headley Court, exploits both the physical and psychological benefits of sport and AT to help re-integration and confidence building for wounded Service personnel.
