A soldier injured in battle said he is determined to make a success of his new life with a bionic arm he can control with his thoughts.
Cpl Andrew Garthwaite, 26, from South Tyneside, was badly injured in Afghanistan when a Taliban grenade took off his right arm.
He is believed to be the first person in the UK to have such a bionic arm.
It involved surgery, including having his nerve system rewired, and months of learning how to use the new arm.
Cpl Garthwaite was badly injured in Helmand, Afghanistan, in September 2010 when a Taliban rocket-propelled grenade took off his right arm and killed one of his comrades.
