Transcript from ‘The World’s Longest Kill’podcast

Craig – I went down to teach in Pirbright for two years and ended up doing my course there. I ended up being an instructor.

Chris – So out of how many people rock up for these courses and how many pass them?

Craig – You can have about 30 on the course. You go through different fitness phases and then they weed you out. So you end up with either 10 on the course or 12 on the course. They hit you hard because as a sniper you’ve got to know you field crafts as well as your discipline. Being mature as well, as you’re shooting and everything’s got to be there. You’ve got to be the whole package really. It’s funny, my chief instructor was a marine down there.

Chris – What did you picture in your mind when you wanted to become a sniper?

Craig – Everyone’s got this idea you go out with a rifle, look through a scope and you shoot people. It’s actually to gather live information on the battlefield.
