Posted on August 19, 2014

Hero fusilier Tom James was just 20 when he suffered horrific injuries including losing an arm in Afghanistan, but five years later he’s engaged

A blinded soldier who became the symbol of British bravery when he attended a comrade’s funeral just weeks after they were both blown-up by a Taliban roadside bomb has found love.

 

Hero fusilier Tom James was just 20 when he suffered horrendous injuries and burns after an IED went off while he was on foot patrol in Helmand province in Afghanistan.

 

The hidden explosive claimed the 25-year-old’s right arm, an eye and several fingers and also broke his leg, his pelvis and left him with horrific burns.
