Karl Hinett and Jaco Van Gass Honoured In Debretts ”People of Today’

Jaco Van Gass and Karl Hinett who took part in Walking With The Wounded’s 2012 Everest expedition have been included in this year’s edition of Debrett’s People of Today.

Debrett’s publishes the influence edition of Peerage and Baronetages. In 1982, the publisher diversified away from the aristocracy with its People of Today edition. People of Today a keeps a record of luminaries within the British establishment like newspaper editors or Nobel prize winners.

2012’s People of Today is a much more democratic affair and includes everyone from TV presenters, Olympians to our very own Walking With The Wounded alumni.

To have Karl and Jaco appear in a list of honours that includes this year’s crop of Olympic heroes is a tremendous honour and shows how much these two have achieved despite their life-changing injuries.

Congratulations to both.
