The Bush War | Rhodesian Light Infantry

Chris served in 3 Commando, Rhodesian Light Infantry from 1976 to 1979. He saw continuous action against Mugabe’s ZANLA and NKomo’s ZIPRA forces. Airmobile in Alouette III helicopters and vintage C-47 Dakotas, Chris amassed over twenty combat jumps. The Rhodesian commandos were at the spearhead on cross-border raids into Zambia and Mozambique.

Transcript from ‘The Bush War | 3 Commando’ podcast

Chris – There were probably three or four fire forces in operation at any one time. Not all were operated by the R.L.I. with a couple being operated by the Rhodesian African Rifles. They raised the fire force strength from three helicopters and a Dakota DC3 converted. The Dakota could take sixteen to twenty pairs at a time.

What had happened, is the fire force would take the three helicopters and they’d go off to the contact area with the Lynx hovering around. The helicopters would go back and try and pick up a second wave of troops if they could. Depending on how the contact developed, he would utilize his powers and they would drop sixteen to twenty to troops. They would become the sweep line.

King Arthur & The History Of Stonehenge | Bought The T-Shirt #233

King Arthur & the history of Stonehenge, features Arthur Pendragon who is a veteran and self-declared reincarnation of King Arthur.

King Arthur & The History Of Stonehenge

King Arthur Uther Pendragon is an eco-campaigner, Druid leader and self-declared reincarnation of King Arthur. Born into a working-class family, Arthur served in the Royal Hampshire Regiment and went on to form the Loyal Arthurian Warband. Angered by the English Heritage charging money to visit Stonehenge, he picketed outside on a daily basis. Joining with the council of British Druid Orders, they campaigned for open access to Stonehenge. Arthur has also stood in several elections as an independant candidate for Salisbury. In 2003, Pendragon published his autobiography, ‘The Trials of Arthur’.

Transcript from ‘King Arthur & The History Of Stonehenge’ podcast

Arthur – One of the arguments I had with the Pagan community, is if you go around Britain and look at a lot of the sacred Pagan sites, they were at one stage Christianized. Effectively what he was saying, was that if they’re going to go and worship anyway, you may as well build a church. A lot of the Pagans say, well what the hell is that doing on an ancient Pagan site? They Christianized it and they’ve stole it and I always say no.

14 INT Op Banner | Martin Edwards Royal Marines | Podcast #232

14 INT Op Banner, features Martin Edwards, who after leaving The Royal Marines, joined 14 INT in the fight against terrorism in Northern Ireland.

14 INT | Op Banner | Martin Edwards Royal Marines

Martin Edwards was a Royal Marine and went on to be an operator in the elite 14th Intelligence unit. Originally from Rhyl, Martin escaped a horrific childhood to forge out a successful and varied career. He managed to retire as a multi-millionaire. His best-selling book, ‘Ultimate Survivor’ tells a mind-blowing story of IRA ambushes and run-ins with Sinn Fein politicians. Add to the mix a few military coups and being a bodyguard to royalty.

Transcript from ’14 INT | Op Banner’ podcast

Martin – They both had the same injuries as the bullets had gone through their stomach. James had gone for his pistol and taken a lot out, so she sat with him as he died in the hospital. I was on control because you have one operator doing the radio to call people in and the two operators. Well unfortunately he died bless him. I was going to go back in the marines until I was interviewed by a major who called me a fucking cowboy.

There was about a month before I said no and so when I went back I was all bravado. This is where I followed McGuinness into a shop. You get all cocky don’t you at the end of your tour, nothing can touch me. So I’m doing a foot patrol through Derry and McGuinness walks into this shop.

Murderers and Psychopaths | Dr Sohom Das | Podcast #231

Murderers and psychopaths features Dr Sohom Das, who is a consultant forensic psychiatrist and has featured on many national television shows.

Murderers and Psychopaths | Dr Sohom Das | Podcast

Doctor Sohom Das hosts a YouTube channel, named ‘A Psych for Sore Minds’. There he takes a look at the full range of mental health issues, also diagnosing and working with psychopaths. His in-depth analysis includes case-studies of Peter Sutcliffe and the infamous ‘Charles Bronson’.

Transcript from ‘Murderers and Psychopaths’ podcast.

Sohom – Yes that does sound like somebody who could be a psychopath. I suppose gaslighting may be what you’re talking about. It’s kind of a manipulation to make somebody think they’re crazy for questioning their behaviour.

There’s something fascinating about going into other people’s delusional worlds. I speak to these people with diagnoses like schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder. There’s no other way for me to put it and it’s just like stepping into somebody else’s delusional system. I saw a lot of people who would be at the lower steps and post-suicide attempts would be a classic reason for being admitted.
