Royal Anglians: Viking heroes take to the seas

Corporal Billy Moore MC and Private Matt Woollard both of 1st Battalion, the Royal Anglian Regiment, The Vikings, and both seriously wounded fighting in Afghanistan have set off on a new challenge: to sail around the English coastline.

The journey is part of an initiative run by the Essex-based Cirdan Sailing Trust which works to help young people - especially those who are disabled or disadvantaged - experience life at sea.

Trust chief exec Nick Back said: "The Royal Anglians are our local regiment and this voyage shows our appreciation of the work they have done and continue to do."

Good luck, lads!
