Transcript from ‘Special Air Service Secrets & Legends’ podcast

Lofty – When he came back to the squadron to take over D Squadron, he wanted to do parts of selection again, so he volunteered. He didn’t have to do it, he’d come back and he said he would like to do endurance march. So when going back to the squadron, people wouldn’t say oh he’s come through the back door. I had breakfast with him at three o’clock in the morning and we dispatched him over the hills.

He got hypothermia and he died on Brecon Beacons. He’s not the first I’m guessing and won’t be the last. You know it’s the toughest force in the world for a reason.

Chris – What about those three troopers that died and where they did they came from? They were reservists weren’t they and they got heat stroke?

Lofty – You shouldn’t have to tell trained soldiers water discipline.

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.

The Man Who Protects BEAR GRYLLS | Born Survivor

Former Royal Marine Scott Heffield is a TV location scout, crew safety risk management manager and creative producer for such productions as Born Survivor (Man Vs Wild), Netflix, National Geographic, NBC, Discovery. He is also the man who protects Bear Grylls.

Transcript from ‘The Man Who Protects Bear Grylls’ podcast

Scott – I should add, being a police officer you see a side of life. A lot of people don’t. At the time I’d left the marines, I thought it was quite tough and then I joined the police. I realized that would toughen me up. You know, Thursday, Friday, Saturday night in a big town or city centre. With going from fight to fight, you soon have a different perspective on life I tell you. You know, different from the corps, not better or worse, just certainly different.
