About the lecture:
The life story of LCpl Corie Mapp of The Life Guards, who left his home in Barbados on a one-way, self-funded ticket to join the Household Cavalry, served at HCMR, notching up a number of ‘firsts’ for a Barbadian, and then while serving with HCR lost both legs in Afghanistan to an IED whilst under Taliban fire. Undaunted, within a month he was walking on prosthetic legs and within 5 years had become the World Para Bobsleigh champion.
About the speaker:
Christopher Joll is a former officer in The Life Guards and the Regimental Historian of the Household Cavalry. He is also a serial author of novels and histories, a guest speaker for several cruise lines, a regular contributor at literary festivals, and an audio and video podcaster for the Household Cavalry Museum.
