Dalgety Bay war veteran reconnected with Navy heritage thanks to the Scottish War Blinded Charity

Fiona McCormick, Scottish War Blinded Rehabilitation Officer, assessed Jim Thompson (95) at home in Dalgety Bay and worked closely with him to establish the ideal specialist equipment to help him maintain his independence – including the Traveller HD and specialist portable lighting. All provided free of charge by the charity.

Jim said: “Fiona’s been very good. She came to visit me at home with a range of pieces of equipment to try out and the support I’ve been receiving from her has been lovely. I can’t fault it.”
