Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Baz

C – Baz how are you brother?

B – Really well Chris, great to see you. I haven’t seen you in quite a while with the stuff going on, so it’s great to see your face mate.

C – Yes mate, and yours too. How are you feeling about tomorrow.

B – I’m ready, I’m a bit like you mate, I sort of decided to do this quite late, but fortunately I look after myself and do quite a lot of running anyway. My escape tends to be out on the moors near where I live, so I’ve really knuckled down and focused on doing this run in the last couple of weeks properly. It’s probably not the sort of time you should be giving yourself into an eighty mile run but…

Prev 1 of 1 Next

Ever wondered what it is like to fight in the Norwegian Arctic, carrying an eighty pound bergen on a pair of skis, jumping into ice-cold water and sleeping in a snowcave? In this podcast I talk about my arctic warfare training in Norway (AWT) in the first year of a Royal Marines Commando Unit.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris

C – Hello friends, I hope this finds you well. Welcome back to another in my what’s the royal marines really like series. I’ve been really looking forward to doing this for quite some time now, because I’m going to talk about Norway, which looking back at least was an experience I was so glad I went through, if maybe I wasn’t so happy at the time for reasons I’ll explain. So Norway is where the Royal Marines do their Arctic Warfare training. I first sort of came across the Norway experience as opposed to just hearing about it when I was on rear party at 42 Commando. So I left for training in February, bitterly cold when we did our commando tests and I went to 42 Commando which is at Bickley, just outside Plymouth, and I was on something called rear party which is basically guard duty. The reason being the whole unit were away on winter deployment or exercise and this was of course in Norway where 42 and 45 commando go every year, at least that’s how it was when I served…

CC – Hello mate, very well. Thank you for having me on the podcast, I’m a big fan of your show Chris.

C – Ahh that’s an absolute honour mate, I’m not always good at taking compliments, because I just do stuff.

CC – A lot of high achievers are the same, can’t take a compliment.

C – Yeah, what I do know is I have love and respect so thank you for saying that. This podcast and a lot of content creators will tell you this, and you are one yourself. You’ve certainly been in the media a lot in your history Chris, but anyone will tell you it all starts with a first move. An idea, a dream, that you put into action. I didn’t have to start to talking into that webcam, well not that webcam, that’s an expensive one and I started on the one that comes with your PC. Yes it all starts with an idea, you start talking into that web camera, when it’s not breaking down like it just did!

John Mew was the PTI on HMS Coventry when the ship was sunk in the Falklands Conflict. John was also a Royal Navy filed gunner and commercial diver, but his toughest battle came after being diagnosed with PTSD in 2015.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and John

C – John, how are you shipmate?

J – Fine, how are you?

C – Yes all good here mate, I’m just delighted really that through a mutual acquaintance Frank King. I’ve already done a podcast with Frank which will be premiering soon. Frank put us in contact, he said I’ve got a guy that I’m working with who was sank on a ship in the Falklands and my radar went up immediately. As you know I was on an aircraft carrier for a year and you have to do all the training obviously in case you have to abandon ship. It’s kind of the thing that every sailor does not want to happen, especially the poor old skipper. So it’s absolutely delightful to speak to you John, thank you  very much…
