Injured soldier on loss of his arm


Lance Corporal Mark Dryden was on his second tour of Iraq when his vehicle was caught in a roadside bomb explosion in Basra.

The November 2005 incident left him without a right arm and killed one of his colleagues.

Despite his injuries he says "If I could turn back the clock, I wouldn't change a thing"
