Simon Weston OBE
Falklands Hero and Outstanding Motivator
Simon Weston's story has been well publicised having been the subject of three major BBC documentaries: Simon's War, Simon's Peace and Simon's Triumph, as well as being a "victim" on This is your Life. He co-founded a charity, The Weston Spirit, now established across the UK. "Simon's life is an example of great personal triumph and courage"
Simon joined the Welsh Guards, and before forming part of the Falklands Task Force, served in Berlin, Kenya and Northern Ireland. In 1982 Simon was aboard the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Sir Galahad when it was attacked and destroyed by Argentine aircraft. The horrific burns which he suffered have required a series of operations which continue to this day. His life is an active one, having learnt to fly and is a highly proficient saloon car-racing driver. In addition, he has many charity commitments including active support of the Royal British Legion, and the Royal Star and Garter Homes.
