Meet Anthony Harris
Trustee for Blesma since:
16 June 2013
Tony Harris served for 10 years in the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers reaching the rank of Captain.
He was injured in Sangin in Afghanistan in the summer of 2009. He underwent long hospitalisation and some 20 operations over many months culminating in the loss of his left leg. Maintaining that this was the real start of getting back to normal he threw himself into a number of recovery orientated activities and events – particularly in motor rallies such as the Dacca - and in so doing set up his own inspirational Race2Recovery organisation involving other injured servicemen and women.
He was speculatively recruited into Blesma - before finally deciding to have an amputation - by the General Secretary at a regimental event! He volunteered to stand as a Trustee and was elected on 16 June 2013.
