A lone walker with an ankle injury has been plucked to safety from deep snow in the Scottish Highlands in one of the most challenging rescues faced by any HMS Gannet duty crew this year.

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)

Likewise, 81 to 85 then again 88 to 90.
