"When I returned to the UK, my worst nightmare came true."

In 1996, Billy served in the Royal Artillery. He was posted to Bosnia on a peacekeeping mission, which included the horrific exhumation of mass graves. Billy contracted a rare virus as a result.

He woke up one morning and opened both of his eyes to pitch black. He was completely blind.

Billy's whole world collapsed.

That's when Blind Veterans UK stepped in.
