Despite sustaining injuries in action in Afghanistan Robinson has become a successful Paralympian and Invictus Games participant. Support from the RAF Benevolent Fund was vital during his recovery. During a patrol in Afghanistan in 2013, Stuart Robinson’s RAF Regiment vehicle hit an Improvised Explosive Device. The explosion resulted in the loss of his left leg and seriously damaged his right arm and leg. In hospital, he took the decision to have his right leg amputated. After his recovery, the RAF Benevolent Fund helped Robinson purchase a specially-adapted trike which has helped to improve the quality of his life at home.
