Transcript from ‘The Downside Of Winning The Military Cross’ podcast

Trevor – I only found out I got the award in September. The patrol I was on in Baghdad at the time, I didn’t think anything different. We do that stuff in Baghdad, day in day out, but I never accepted it if I’m going to be honest. I was sitting beside my two OC as a session Commander, when a motor landed behind and took off half his head and he died. That happened the day before, so whenever I found out on the 7th, it didn’t really hit home.

I just ignored it and I didn’t tell anyone because we were grieving and you don’t rub everyone’s face in it. I was attacked non-stop because of that, from people saying, I didn’t deserve it. They identified every round I fired and where my rounds went. It doesn’t matter if it’s the whole magazine spraying, if they’re not hitting anything, they shouldn’t be on a patrol.

Royal Marines Commando Recruit Troop Boss And Kat!

Jock Hutchison is president and co-founder of Horseback UK. He was a commissioned officer in the Royal Marines and saw service all over the world. Jock was selected to be a helicopter pilot and served across all branches of the British Armed Forces. Horseback UK was set up to help veterans with life-changing injuries, although that demographic has changed to include civilians.
Kat Henderson worked as a nurse in Australia, before joining the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. After being an outdoors adventurer, she had a life changing moment from a biking accident in France, which saw her paralysed from the waist down. She is now on the team with Horseback UK.

Transcript from ‘Royal Marines Commando Recruit Troop Boss And Kat!’ podcast

Jock – We help people from the military community and others and our job is to help people that have really hit rock bottom, to reconnect to their former self and re-establish themselves in the world. I’ll talk about that as we go on but that’s our mission.

Chris – Is that how you met Kat and do you want to explain how that came about?

Jock – Yes I’ll introduce Kat. You know I was a member of our team, the Royal Marines which encouraged values that have never left me. Speaking to Chris, it’s great to hear that you know whatever happens in life, I don’t think that kind of experience ever leaves you. We needed to put a team together to help the work that we do and at the heart of that idea is the idea of empowering people from within the community.

Sentenced To Death By The DPR | Shaun Pinner Ukraine Marines

Shaun Pinner is a former British soldier from the Royal Anglian Regiment, who joined the Ukrainian marines. When the Russian invasion of Ukraine started, he and his colleagues were right at the front of the action. Eventually captured and sentenced to death, but freed in September as part of a prisoner exchange. Shaun had previously served with the United Nations mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina. With Shaun’s previous military experience, he was made squad commander in Ukraine.

Transcript from ‘Sentenced To Death By The DPR’ podcast

Shaun – I was losing weight and then on top of that, we had the interrogations and everything else which just meant I was always fighting lack of intake of food. I was just starving to death and I still say to people, it’s the worst form of torture. You’re just sitting in the cell all day and you’re just thinking about food and where you can get your next food. If you’re in an isolation cell, you don’t know what’s happening and what’s going on. I was quite lucky because I could speak a bit of Russian. When I met the other guys, I was a translator and had an understanding of what was going on.
