Episode notes

Lorraine Kelly introduces a conversation between Joseph Connor and Gary Jamieson.
Joseph Connor joined the Army in 1942. He was honoured by the French government for his part in liberating France during the Second World War. He continues to live independently at his home in Glasgow at the age of 94. 
Gary Jamieson was in his 14th year of service – and on his second tour of Afghanistan – when he was catastrophically injured by an Improvised Explosive Device. The blast killed his patrol commander, and Gary lost both legs above the knee, and his left arm above the elbow.
