In this episode, I chat with Stu Lawson. Since a horrific accident on a military firing range left him badly burned and disfigured Stu has taken up Scuba Diving.Over a brew Stu explains how through the encouragement of his surgeon and the support of 'Diving with the Wounded' he has found a new lease of life.

 

At the end of a full career in the British Army, Stu Lawson, was unfortunately involved in a freak accident whilst trapped inside a Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank at Castle Martin Ranges in South Wales.

 

If you want to hear all the details, grab yourself a brew and listen to his insightful and exciting story.

✅ “Fancy a brew?” a Scuba Diving inspired chat over a brew about life, adventure, mental and physical resilience and determination to succeed in the sport we love.

 

✅ The podcast where I’ll be talking to those who influenced me as a diver, about their incredible experiences and how they found mental and physical resilience, whilst devoting their lives to Scuba Diving. These will (hopefully) be insightful and exciting discussions about people taking on scuba diving and its challenges, and how they came out the other side stronger through finding inspiration in connecting with nature’s underwater world.
