CaptainUnderpants Wed 23-Sep-09 21:49:34

Totally agree - hope Tony (arse0) Blair is watching it ! angry

Very brave boys ... they are only boys sad.

PortBlacksandResident Wed 23-Sep-09 21:54:40

Yes i'm only 35 but am looking at them more along the lines of my DS. Boys blown to bits. God - if they wanted to sign up to fight someone elses war.........

I'm saying now they'd have to step over my cold dead body but i don't know what they'll feel in 10 yrs time.

bloody hell.

OllieWollieWoo Wed 23-Sep-09 22:15:43

Very moving - provoked losta tears from me. Why has something like this not been on before now - you never hear stories like theirs - and its really opened my eyes. Full of admiration at the way they have coped and accepted their situation. So brave.

SlartyBartFast Wed 23-Sep-09 22:45:14

absolutely amazing watching.

SlartyBartFast Wed 23-Sep-09 22:49:47

high praise to all the nhs staff

PortBlacksandResident Wed 23-Sep-09 22:58:05

I have a feeling a may be sobbing soon...

ajamore Wed 23-Sep-09 22:58:11

Just watching it now - Christ. There are so many people out there, coping with so much shit it's very humbling.

PortBlacksandResident Wed 23-Sep-09 23:01:13

The Dad was in bits...

SlartyBartFast Wed 23-Sep-09 23:03:10

nothign but respect for those two soldiers.

smugmumofboys Wed 23-Sep-09 23:06:03

Can't see the screen for the tears.

It's so humbling. They are just boys.

PortBlacksandResident Wed 23-Sep-09 23:07:38

smug - me too

McDreamy Wed 23-Sep-09 23:17:17

So much for my early night - it's compulsive viewing isn't it? So far I know most of the medical staff!!

Poor poor lad, I get the feeling it's going to get worse sad

MavisEnderby Wed 23-Sep-09 23:18:00

Dear me,wondered if there was a thread on this.Have just ome downstairs after watching this and don't think I have ever sobbed so much over a tv documentary.

Both of them,just boys like you say showed amazing courage and determination.

I was in floods when One saw his baby and the other walked across the parade ground.

brimfull Wed 23-Sep-09 23:21:35

very moving

they are just kids but so brave

McDreamy Thu 24-Sep-09 00:44:48

Wow!!! What amazing boys! Just amazing, so brave, so accepting. Brilliant film.

Saltire Thu 24-Sep-09 08:39:04

I watched this too, although couldn't see much because I kept crying blush. I said to DH, imagine how the staff at Headly Court must feel when they see someone walk after being fitted with prosthetics, what a wonderful feeling to know you had helped someone like that.

McDreamy, I recongised a few of teh staff as well.

OllieWollieWoo Thu 24-Sep-09 11:38:15

Didnt see the second part and keep thinking about the 2 soldiers featured. Did he get his eyesight back so he could see his baby??? (Hope that doesnt sound too morbid to ask but they have been on my mind all day) One of my best friends is an army medic and now I can understand a bit more what she went through.

meltedmarsbars Thu 24-Sep-09 12:42:56

Ollie, yes, just enough to see doorways and self-propel in his chair.

Its was absolutely shocking.

I will be doing the shoebox for soldiers this christmas.

In fact, can I do it now? Where do I send one?

IWantCleanCarpets Thu 24-Sep-09 13:11:12

Just watched part 2 on iplayer whilst doing the ironing.

meltedmarsbars - although your intentions are good please don't do the shoe box thing unless it's to a specific individual. In the past they have had so many boxes that it blocks up the BFPO postal system and people didn't get their own family parcels until way after Christmas. Last Christmas I understand that any unaddressed boxes were simply stockpiled in the UK until way after Christmas and then obviously only sent as and when there was spare capacity.
