Lamin Maneh was born in Gambia and moved to the UK to join the Irish Guards.
From the beginning of his interview it’s apparent that his outlook is one of absolute positivity. He’s a devout Muslim and shares some unique insight into his time in Afghanistan prior to the IED explosion that almost killed him.
You may recognise him from the BBC’s DIY SOS.
