Ashley Bruce This is My Country

Thursday 7 July 2016

Ashley Bruce has written and recorded a very special song inspired by the brilliant men and women that make up our amazing armed forces. The song is to raise money and awareness for those injured servicemen and women and help support their families who are also affected.

Ashley was struck down by a brain haemorrhage just before Christmas 1998.  In the following 12 months, he was in and out of hospital and suffered a further subdural hematoma. His life hung in the balance and doctors warned of a 5% chance of survival.

But after neurosurgeons performed three lifesaving operations, lasting over 17 hours, he lived to tell the tale. Ashley was struck down for a second time shortly after leaving hospital with a potentially fatal subdural hematoma and subsequently had to undergo further lifesaving brain surgery, however by the end of the summer of 1999, Ashley was at home and on the road to recovery, writing his music with an even greater determination and depth of musical ability that surprised even him.

“I had to fight for my life twice through a freak illness, however our military personnel make a selfless decision to put their lives on the line for each and every one of us the moment they sign up to serve our country’

"I am truly inspired and in total ore of our soldiers’ incredible courage, drive and selfless desire to help ensure the very best and safest world for which we all can live and breathe.

"We as a nation therefore should all stand by our Heroes.”
