A team of six wounded veterans, four British and two American, are walking 1000 miles across Britain to raise money for Walking With The Wounded. They started in Scotland on the 22nd August and will finish on the 1 November at Buckingham Palace. 

They will be welcomed to Colchester today by the Major of the town. There is a reception being held tonight at 7pm at Firstsite. This will be the 63rd day of their 72 day challenge.
