Injured veterans have been taking part in Dragon Boat racing on the Thames.
 
The Purple Warriors Team was set up to help veterans get back into competitive sport and aid their recovery.
 
It's a sport where disabled teams can compete on equal terms with able bodied crews.
 
Dragon Boat Racing has ancient Chinese origins and its history has been traced back more than 2000 years. 
 
Today Dragon Boat racing involves teams of up to twenty paddlers in a 40 foot boat with a drummer and helm.
