Royal Navy crew in hazardous snowy rescue

#2
Bit of de ja with that one.

Did similar a decade or so ago on Ben Eime! A nice little outcrop called 'the Cobbler' a well known visit for walkers.

Only for broken ankle I went down to a shattered face, dislodged eye, both arms and legs broken. I spent in excess of five hours on the mountain side with the casualty. The Sea King returned to Glasgow for fuel whilst I was tending the injured chap, fortunately I was joined by a couple of MRT chaps who assisted.

But well done to this crew, I at least had semi decent weather.

Best Draft(s) in the Mob - Two tours with 819 Gannet SAR Flight. Done a many job in the Highlands - though in my time at Prestwick, that was before we were issued with proper mountain kit - (snow boots/crampons, ice axes etc)
