Under Siege and Fighting Back, Jamie Sanderson

Trailer Full video

Former Royal Marine sniper Jamie Sanderson served in Afghanistan. He was under attack in intense, chaotic battlegrounds. Not surprisingly, defending his comrades in a place where he was expecting to get hit, hurt or killed every day took its toll on his nerves. The contrast of returning home injured was also a shock. Jamie began to suffer from PTSD and at first, his treatment didn’t help. He reached the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro and realised that his mental strength was not broken, just injured. He describes his recovery as a process of fighting back and trying to regain strength and control.
