My Boyfrend the War Hero

I don't know if any of you Noddlers saw this BBC Documentary about an 18 year old squaddie who was blown to bits by an Afghan booby trap.

This is the heart rendering documentary of how his 16 year old girlfriend/Fianc'e stands by him as a triple amputee with severe facial injuries.

It was shown on BBC 1 last night but originally on BBC 3.

It made me feel really humble as I think I have problems (As we all do)

There but for the Grace of God go I

I do not know how long it will be available on I Player but this is the link if you want to watch the whole 50 minute documentary.

The credits at the end are a bit sad!!

Sadly it is no longer available at the moment on BBC IPlayer. There is a tiny part of this documentary on You Tube. Hopefully there will be more later.

I've watched it... very, very moving... Makes me so mad with some of the idiots out there who are total timewasters.. they could do with a tour out in the sandpit to teach them just how hard life can be....

Rant over...

So brave, but oh so young . Whilst watching this, and admiring the effort these two youngsters were putting into every day made me think of the waste of life some folks bring upon themselves. A friend said to me "If you love enough you can get through anything". I don't agree with that, life and problems can destroy that idealistic view. I hope these young people will find peace in their lives and future partners to love. Going to bed now feeling very sad.

I forgot to mention that near the end they are invited to the BBC's Morning TV Programme and meet Piers Morgan. It is the first time they have ever been to London and the manager at York station upgrades them to First Class for the trip!
