About Damien Thomlinson

While serving in Afghanistan with the 2nd Commando Regiment, Thomlinson’s life was changed forever. In April 2009, whilst on night patrol in Southern Afghanistan, Damien’s unit drove over an improvised Taliban bomb. Damien suffered horrendous injuries in the explosion, which resulted in both of his legs being amputated. Most people could not imagine recovering and moving on from something as debilitating as the loss of two limbs – but Damien isn’t most people, and giving up is not in his nature. Thomlinson decided to treat the loss of his legs as another challenge to be overcome, a challenge that would forever change his life. With appearances at the 2014 and 2016 Invictus Games as well as screen features in Hacksaw Ridge in late 2015, Thomlinson has truly embraced life to the fullest, representing the ANZAC spirit.
