Harry Parker: ‘Losing my legs in Afghanistan was like losing a loved one’

‘It was on July 18 2009, when Harry Parker was returning from a night patrol with some 50 men, that he made a mistake – deciding to take a line of soldiers on a short cut through a field rather than follow the longer path. ‘It was only my arrogance as a soldier to walk across that field, because it was this close to camp, and  I thought, right, I’ll take a risk here rather than minesweeping it.’
