Corie Mapp New Brand Ambassador

Corie Mapp - Brand Ambassador for Hope & Glory Forces Wear and Gifts Ltd

Rob Mather |

We are delighted to confirm Corie Mapp as our new brand ambassador for Hope and Glory Forces Wear & Gifts ltd and our wider brands. 

Corie is a massive inspiration for all of us here, and the wider forces and sports community. 

Corie is the reigning Overall World Cup and European Champion in Para Bobsleigh, as well as a multiple World Cup and World Championship medalist.

The former Household Cavalryman will be supporting our product offerings, with his own way of scrutinising and letting people know what he thinks of our products. 

Born in Bridgetown, Barbados, Mapp came to Britain in 2005 to join the Army where he was the first Barbadian to ride on the Queen's Birthday Parade (Trooping the Colour) and on other mounted State ceremonial duties.



In 2008, he was posted as a combat vehicle driver to the Household Cavalry Regiment in Windsor, which was deployed to Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in late 2009. While on active duty there in early 2010 he lost both legs when his military vehicle ran over an explosive device. Mapp was unconscious for two weeks but within a month of his injury was starting to walk on prosthetic legs.

He later competed in athletics and sitting volleyball for the British Army in the 2013 Warrior Games, and the first three Invictus Games. in 2020 Mapp joined Wilshire Police as a full-time Police Community Support Officer.  His autobiography Black Ice, written with former Life Guard and military historian, Christopher Joll was published in October 2021.

We salute you Corie as a real inspiration, Amazing person.
