British Iraq war veterans to visit Cayman Islands

| 18/07/2010

(X-Ray Mag): Four wounded British veterans of the Iraq war will be travelling to the British Overseas Territory of The Cayman Islands later this month to experience the islands’ acclaimed diving in an extraordinary rehabilitation programme known as Deptherapy, which has been pioneered by paraplegic Scottish diver Fraser Bathgate. The four British soldiers will be on the first ever British-led programme by The Deptherapy Foundation, which has been established by Bathgate. They will join six US soldiers to undergo a week of this unusual but highly effective form of intensive therapy. Deptherapy is in fact a scuba diving programme which has been specifically designed to help wounded soldiers rehabilitate after their return from active service.
