Private Heath Jamieson
Private Jamieson has worked with Tactical Assault Group East and deployed to Afghanistan in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
It was during his 2011 deployment that he was wounded in an engagement with insurgents, sustaining a gunshot wound to the neck.
He received significant damage to his vertebrae, spinal cord and a brachial plexus injury.
Barely able to walk and having limited use of his left arm, he commenced his rehabilitation immediately and made significant progress, resuming work in February 2012.
Pte Jamieson said he was looking forward to sharing the challenge of a great adventure with a team of like-minded and motivated people.
“It is a great privilege to be included in this expedition and an honour to have the opportunity to represent wounded soldiers who have given so much for their countries,” he said.
“This expedition will raise awareness of their sacrifice and allow charities to continue to provide the much needed support.”
