Unsung HERO Of The Falklands War | Mick Fellows MBE | Royal Navy

Michael George Fellows MBE DSC BEMG, joined the Royal Navy in 1955. Mick was Fleet Chief Petty Officer Clearance Diver and second-in-command of the team, when the Falklands War started. His job was to search RFA and Warships for limpet mines, after suspected enemy underwater operations against the fleet. Under attack, Mick’s team were tasked to investigate and defuse numerous unexploded bombs onboard many of the taskforce ships.

His team’s amazing and highly dangerous work, helped save the lives of hundreds of British personel. He is the first man in naval history to defuse unexploded bombs on board a warship at sea. Mick was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross. Another award came in the shape of the British Empire Medal for Gallantry, for bomb and mine disposal in Northern Ireland. Further work in the Royal Navy saw him receive the MBE, after the tragic Herald Of Free Enterprise accident. Mick served a total of 35 years with the Royal Navy and ended his career with the rank of Warrant Officer, first class.

Transcript from ‘Unsung HERO Of The Falklands War’ podcast

Mick – Initially we left our position by the bomb and ran forward for shelter. We ran first into a mess deck and I saw a table there. So I went to dive under the table only to find out that my leading diver was already under there. He looked at me and said, you might be the boss but fuck off, I was here first. I looked at him, looked up and saw we were both hiding under a five-ply wooden table that wasn’t going to protect us from anything.

We were working alongside what I thought at that time and confirmed later, was a 1000 pound bomb. We had a bit of a laugh then decided, let’s get on with the bomb. I worked around the bomb clearing wreckage away, while my guys were putting out the fire. Then in between times, assisting me with cold chisels, hammers and hacksaws. We cleared the wreckage so I could get towards the tail end to see the state of the fuse. I realized after a while that the tail end of the bomb had snapped off on its passageway through the ship.

London Firefighter’s HORRIFIC True Stories | Stephen Charles #288

London Firefighter’s HORRIFIC True Stories, features Stephen Charles, who was a London Firefighter for 25 years & is now a successful author.

London Firefighter’s HORRIFIC True Stories | Stephen Charles

Stephen Charles served for 25 years in the London Fire Brigade, retiring in 2018. After an amazing career, Stephen became an author and had his first book published, ‘Blood, Soot and Tears’. This gripping podcast sheds some light on Steve’s experiences, serving in one of Britain’s busiest brigades.

Transcript from ‘London Firefighter’s HORRIFIC True Stories’ podcast

Stephen – We pitched the ladder and then we got inside the tower and onto the balcony. We had to pick someone up on the balcony and into the fireman’s carry. Then we had to get over the balcony and onto the ladder with them over your shoulders. That was what’s called a carry down. They don’t do that anymore because these were things that the women found it difficult to do. To pick up and carry down someone is very difficult to do, so they just stopped doing it. So people who go to the fire station now, will turn up and not know if they’re able to carry someone down the ladder or not.

Veteran Paratrooper Held Hostage By The Taliban | Anthony Stephen Malone

Anthony Stephen Malone is a former British Paratrooper and security adviser. He has featured on many news channels, including ITV and SKY News. Whilst trying to secure free passage for British citizens in Afghanistan, he was taken for questioning by The Taliban and held for six months.

Transcript from ‘Veteran Paratrooper Held Hostage By The Taliban’ podcast

Anthony – The problem any country is going to have, is who’s going to want to invest in a country where it’s not stable. The security situation is deteriorating, the economy is deteriorating as well. The Taliban were telling the Chinese that everything has been okay. The Chinese promised a large amount of money which was hundreds of millions, to be given to The Taliban. A small amount has changed hands but a lot of it has not.

Everyone’s just pulling back the actual reins and watching what happens. There isn’t just the Chinese who are interested in the natural resources in Afghanistan. You’ve got the Americans, the British and other European countries all trying to talk to the taliban.

Stefan is the host of Sanity 4 Sweden. His channel and social-media, comment on the Swedish Government’s failing immigration policies and the globalist agenda. Stefan’s wide range of topics, include art, music and today’s popular culture.

Transcript from ‘Sanity 4 Sweden’ podcast

Stefan – I’ve been listening to the politicians here in Sweden now and it’s absolutely ridiculous. They are facing the problem now and the problem is right there in their faces. They just won’t look at it and if they are forced to talk about it, they will shift focus to something else and try to say that you know this is not the problem. Anyone can see that the problem started with mass immigration and it will not stop until we deal with that part.

SAS LEGEND Of Survival | John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman | Special Air Service

John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman is a true legend of the British Special Air Service. He joined the Parachute Regiment in 1958 and immediately applied to join the SAS. He set the record as being the youngest person to ever pass selection, at just eighteen years of age! John served with the SAS for over 26 years and rose to the rank of Sergeant Major, B Squadron. His impressive record includes being Head of Operational Research and training the first members of the US Green Berets to return to the USA, to form their Delta Force.

He also founded the SAS Counter-Terrorist Team. On retiring from the regiment, his commanding officer said of him, ‘Lofty is a legend in this regiment’. John’s also been named the ‘Godfather of every major US Tier One Unit’. Lofty’s SAS Survival books have been international best-sellers and still to this day, provide invaluable advice for almost any emergency situation.

Transcript from ‘SAS LEGEND Of Survival’ podcast

John – I was teaching survival in the regiment and the course notes were terrible. It was inaccurate so I thought the first thing I’ll do is get some good handouts. So I started getting everything together and that was the basics of the book. I took it to my colonel and he said, look go and get this published. That was his advice to me, so I added stuff to make it applicable to everyone, for all ages and and before I knew it, I’d come out of the army and the book was printed. It gave me the pedigree to then open my survival score and I’ve never looked back. It’s still in production now.

Doing Business With The Krays | Steve Wraith

Steve Wraith is a former TA soldier, doorman, actor and writer. His film credits include, Rise of The Foot Soldier, The Krays: Dead Man Walking and the hit television police drama, Vera.

Transcript from ‘Doing Business With The Krays’ podcast

Steve – I was just myself and I wasn’t pretending to be somebody I wasn’t. I guess I was valuable in that the twins were inside. I was a small cog in a big machine. Rightly or wrongly, they were making themselves some money but also making myself some money as well.

Chris – The whole train robber thing is a tragedy wasn’t it? I met Buster once, I think it was on Charing Cross platform and he was selling flowers. He later committed suicide. When you look at the enormity of what they pulled off and then the reality of what they had to live with. It wasn’t the result that they all hoped for was it?

Steve – No, I mean it’s a fascinating crime, as it’s a crime against the Queen really.
