Hayley Murdoch<br/>Served as: RAF cartographer<br/>Age: 26<br/>Time in Iraq: February 2004 - June 2004<br/>Hayley Murdoch severely damaged her back and hip while providing cover for a Land Rover patrol in 2004. As an RAF cartographer, she had not trained for the duty she had been performing, something she says is symptomatic of the poor way the MoD has handled both operations in Iraq and her subsequent aftercare."The accident was the easy bit, it was waiting for treatment back home that was a nightmare. You think things will soon get back to normal and then you get left on a shelf. No one likes to watch their life ebb away."When Murdoch did finally manage to get treatment at the MoD's Hedley Court rehabilitation centre, she was more than satisfied with the help she received. She has taken an administrative job in the family business and still uses a walking stick occasionally, but it is the non-visiblesigns of damage that she regrets the most."I joined the military as an outgoing, confident person," she says, "and that really took a beating on my way out."
