A former Wimbledon soldier and his pet dog have starred in a video for a new release of the hit military song ‘Pack Up Your Troubles.’

The single will raise money for the national military charity SSAFA- formerly called the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association.

Mr Robinson served with the 1st Battalion The Queen’s Regiment in the British Army for four years, but suffered life-changing injuries in an industrial accident in 2001, and is now in a wheelchair.

He was supported by the SSAFA after the incident, and is a volunteer fundraiser for the group.

Mr Robinson, 56, said: “Being involved in the video was great fun, but it is important that we remember that the troops involved in WWI and their families suffered terribly during the conflict."
