Scott, from West Yorkshire, joined the Royal Marines in 2008. After passing out he then went to 42 Commando where he deployed on several training packages such as mountain training and an America training package.
Scott also completed a LRR course whilst he was at 42 Commando.
In 2011 Scott deployed to Afghanistan with Lima Company 42 on Operation Herrick 14.
Whilst on tour Scott was involved in an IED blast which left him blind in his right eye. He was medically discharged in 2013.
Scott is most looking forward to seeing how the team will fair in the extreme conditions that Denali will bring and rising to the challenges that they will inevitably have to face:
“To be part of 65 Degrees North is not only an achievement in itself, but it’s extremely exciting to be working as part of a team again.
I personally think this type of rehabilitation is the best type for wounded, injured or sick personnel as it provides us with the opportunity to challenge ourselves again. We still want to achieve great things despite the fact that we have been injured in some way or another, as we used to in the military, and if we can do these things whilst raising money for our cause then even better.”
The team are undertaking this extreme challenge to raise funds for The Royal Marines Charity
