Private Scott McNeice is one of the 72 athletes who will be representing Team UK at this year's Invictus Games in Sydney.
As a British Army healthcare assistant who was formerly employed at Headley Court, it wasn't too much of a surprise when Scott bumped into some of his old patients at the official team announcement.
Scott eventually had to have his left leg amputated after a service-related knee injury, followed by 15 operations.
Less than a year after losing it, he'll be representing his country in six sports.
Scott watched the thrills and excitement of last years Invictus Games in Toronto but experiencing the games as a spectator was bittersweet.
He watched the former service personnel competing just a week before the amputation of his own left leg.
Despite months of pain concluding in the amputation itself, Scott took a light-hearted approach to the loss of his limb.
He then spent six months in a wheelchair before getting his new prosthetic and last week walked into his Help for Heroes recovery centre for the very first time. He says:
"The Games will help me prove... that anything is possible. It has already helped to start opening my mind to a brighter future."
Some of the events the former member of the Army Nursing Corps will be competing in include archery, athletics and wheelchair rugby.
