    The problem with most obvious solutions is that they still rely in some way on having part of the load on the shoulders. A properly adjusted pack always puts the majority of the load on the hips but with any straps present I can see a potential issue arising with further injury. You can see why I was getting proper stuck on this now

    Then the wheel barrow or trolly,seems the best idea.but depends on terrian,its easier to pull something rather than push.

    Hey Jus,

    What about something like this

    It offers use as a trolley and backpack.
    It's worth noting that there are others out there that may have longer reach handles but the beauty of this is the distribution of weight over the shoulders - carrying loads both front and back (should the lad's shoulders recover enough to carry a load).

    P.S - just clocked the price - cheaper options are available!

    That would bee good, but trouble with that style of trolley, is that the wheels are too small for rough terrain

    As a youngster the healing process is pretty quick, they may be on the mend enough to pack a light ruck and a bum bag with effective padding/dressing.....

    Whatever the solution I wish the youngster all the best for a speedy recovery and every success on their DoE journey...

    I have fond memories of mine and it shows a certain strength of character to undertake the D o E award..given its completely voluntary.
