Tumbledown The True Story | Cpt Robert Lawrence MC Scots Guards

Tumbledown the true story, features Captain Robert Lawrence of the Scots Guards, who lost 43% of his brain from a sniper’s bullet.

Tumbledown The True Story | Cpt Robert Lawrence MC Scots Guards

Captain Robert Lawrence MC, is a former British Army officer with the Scot’s Guards. Whilst fighting in the battle for Mount Tumbledown, Robert was severely wounded by a bullet going through his skull. The Argentine sniper then fired shots at a Scout Helicoptor which was evacuating the wounded. Awarded the Military Cross for bravery, he spent a year in a wheelchair, being almost completely paralyzed.

Robert had lost 43% of his brain. Doctors predicted he would never walk again, but to their amazement, he eventually regained most movement. Robert retains a slight limp and a paralyzed left arm. The story was adapted into a BBC television play, starring Colin Firth.

Transcript from ‘Tumbledown The True Story’ podcast

Robert – At the time in the battle, I ran out of ammunition. I’d already taken the decision to throw my mags and I took to picking up Argentinian F.N.’s.

The trouble with that is because you never know what’s in it when you bring it. Could be completely empty so I wasn’t going to throw away my S.L.R. I had the misfortune of stupidly thinking I could change the mag on an F.N. It looks so like an S.L.R. but it has a different magazine clip. When people are shooting at you, you don’t stop and start examining the weapon you’re holding. So that’s how I ended up with the two weapons. They translated that into some sort of ‘True-Grit’ firing with both hands, which was pretty much bollocks. Myself on a ridge with my arms in the air shouting, ‘Isn’t this fun?’, well that’s bollocks as well.

I Lost EIGHT Stone & RAN A 100-MILE Ultramarathon | Podcast #248

I Lost eight stone & ran a 100 mile ultramarathon, features Richard Wilcox, a veteran of the Staffordshire Regiment.

I Lost EIGHT Stone & RAN A 100-MILE Ultramarathon

Richard Wilcox served with the Staffordshire Regiment. After suffering with PTSD, Richard became seriously overweight during the first lockdown period in 2020. He decided to change his lifestyle. After watching videos of ultra running online, he was inspired to take up the sport. He signed up for a 100 mile race and spent a year in intense training. By the end of that year, he’d lost eight stone in the process.

Richard has now taken on 30 marathons in thirty days, to raise money for the mental health charity, Combat Stress. In total, Richard ran for 150 hours and covered more than 790 miles. He’d climbed a total elevation of 61,582ft, equating to getting to the summit of Everest twice. So far, his extraordinary efforts have raised just over £1,500 for Combat Stress. Thank you to Andrew Marshall for bringing Richard’s story to our attention.

Transcript from ‘I Lost EIGHT Stone & RAN A 100-MILE Ultramarathon’ podcast

Richard – I used to get pretty out of breath just going up the stairs and just walking up a slight incline. A hill would have me out of breath and I would have to stop if it was a big hill. There was one ill on holiday and it was probably about 500 meters, with quite a steep incline. I’d stop off wide just for a breather and my grandkids on another holiday were making fun of me.

Britain’s Elite Pathfinders | Steve Brown | Parachute Regiment | #237

Britain’s Elite Pathfinders, features Steve Brown who served with 3 Para and completed six tours of duty over his 27 year service.

Britain’s Elite Pathfinders

Steve Brown is a 27 year veteran of the British Army. He served with 3 Parachute Regiment from 1993 to 2020, completing six tours of duty with 3 PARA and the Pathfinders. His work took him across the globe, from the jungles of Sierra Leone to the harsh deserts of the middle-east. Steve has also taught combat survival to service personnel all around the world.

Transcript from ‘Britain’s Elite Pathfinders’ podcast

Steve – There was one time we were out in Afghanistan and we’re heading towards a town. We’re getting to an obvious sort of choke point and this is dodgy, but we’ve got to go through it. You can’t just turn off a mission because you think it’s dangerous. Obviously the mission is dangerous by nature and while we’re doing that, the guy picked up a transmission on the radio and someone said they are coming.

14 PEAKS The Nimsdai Story | MBE SBS | Bought The T-Shirt #229

14 Peaks the Nimsdai story features Nimsdai Purja who is one of the world’s greatest mountaineers and veteran of the Special Boat Service.

14 PEAKS The Nimsdai Story

Nimsdai was born in Nepal and like his father and brothers before, signed up to join the Gurkhas. Nims then passed selection for the UK’s special-forces and served another ten years with the Special Boat Service. After leaving the forces, Nims has gone on to become one of the world’s greatest mountaineers. He has accumulated an ever-growing list of record-breaking climbs and rescue missions. After one such mission, Nims was awarded an MBE for outstanding achievement in high-altitude mountaineering. His Netflix documentary, ’14 Peaks’, follows his attempt to summit all 14 of the world’s ‘Death Zone’ peaks in just seven months.

Transcript from ’14 PEAKS The Nimsdai Story’ podcast

Nims – Thank you Chris. You know it’s a really humbling. Everything I do in life, I give one-hundred percent and writing this book was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I’m not sure if i’m going to write another book if i’m honest. When you write something, it becomes black and white, then it becomes concrete. To write this amount of an enormous book up to this stage, it’s kind my autobiography. I grew up in a very small humbling background with almost nothing. To joining The Gurkhas, failing on the first attempt and then making it happen. Then going into the special forces and serving with the elite forces for ten years.

Can You REFUSE To Serve In An Illegal Conflict? | Joe Glenton #225

Can you refuse to serve, features Joe Glenton who went on the run, after refusing to go back and fight in Afghanistan

Can You REFUSE To Serve In An Illegal Conflict?

Joe Glenton was a lance corporal with the Royal Logistics Corps, who vowed not to return to Afghanistan. After going on the run for a full 737 days, Joe was jailed at the ‘Glasshouse’ in Colchester. The court-martial heard that Joe had been suffering from PTSD after his first tour of duty. He was later officially discharged from the British army. Joe is now a journalist, film-maker and award-winning author.

Transcript from ‘Can You Refuse To Serve In An Illegal Conflict’ podcast

Joe – I was in a deeply unglamorous corps, as I was in the Royal Logistics corps. I joined which would have been ordnance corps. I’m not exactly sure, but yes I joined in 2004 for probably the same reasons most people do. I’m from a working-class background, it was a route out of that and loved it. I was keen, green and I was gonning to stay forever, which is what we all say at the start. It was the era of Iraq and Afghanistan, so we went to Afghanistan and did a tour. For me it wasn’t a terribly kinetic tour. I was doing the ammunition with the 13 air assault regiment. We were the logistics element of that went out. Over the course of the tour, I started to question the kind of rationales about why we were in Afghanistan.

We were given lots of reasons, such as, it’s about helping women to go to school or stopping the opium trade. I think those started to fall away over the course of the tour. I wasn’t a very political person at the time, but that developed. Not on tour, because you don’t really have time on tour as you know yourself. After that I think that started to crystallize into a kind of critique, a critique of the war in a very uncomplicated way. A moral objection to what was going on and I planned to just get out of the military.

A National DISGRACE | Martin Webster | Podcast #184

A National Disgrace, features Martin Webster chatting with Chris Thrall. In Iraq 2003, Corporal Martin Webster filmed fellow British soldiers ‘dealing with’ youths during a war. Two years later, a British newspaper obtained his footage and the story led to outrage across the world. In March 2007, Martin approached three filmmakers to tell his story.

Transcript from ‘A National Disgrace’ podcast.

Chris – I will hold my hand up and say when I first saw that footage, because of the power of the media, it really just seems like, ‘Oh my God, this is British soldiers behaving badly. You know, what are they doing oh lads, you’re letting us down. When I watched your documentary again, I just felt the way it had been completely spun and yes, all of the backstory and the context was stripped out to make it look like you were the biggest, you know what on the planet.

Martin – What was it all for? I’ve spent the last ten years with therapists trying to figure out who I am. You’re always constantly looking back and reviewing. Through ‘Diary of a disgraced soldier’, I couldn’t have made that film any better, it’s just the untouched frustration of what what I’ve been through.

They Tried To Kill My Family featuring Sean Ivey

When former Royal Marine Sean Ivey reported thugs to the police, the law did nothing. The thugs burned his house, car and caravan down while he and his family slept.

Transcript from ‘They Tried To Kill My Family’

Chris and Sean

C – Sean, I usually say how are you brother, but for some reason that doesn’t seem entirely appropriate, considering what the hell you and your family have just been through. But I’ll say it anyway, how are you mate?

S – I’m pretty good actually, because obviously for those who haven’t heard, my house was set on fire. I stood up to anti-social behaviour online. My car, caravan and house were set on fire while we were asleep at night. The outpouring of support has been amazing and from my family, it’s just something to behold. With it, I’m going to use this platform to make positive changes to anti-social behaviour and that’s keeping my spirits up. A lot of people are taking solace from the the fact that someone stood up to be heard. That’s what I want everyone to do. So my spirits are good and the kids are a little bit oblivious to what’s gone on because their only five and seven. My missus is struggling to be honest.

The SPECIAL FORCES Experience

Jason Bowen is a former Special Forces Signaller who now runs ‘The S.F. Experience’. The S.F. Experience is staffed by former elite operators from the SAS, SBS and SFSG to give members of the public a taste of the hardest military selection course in the world.

Transcript from ‘The SPECIAL FORCES Experience’ podcast

Chris and Jason

C – Jason how you doing mate?

J – I’m all good thanks Chris, it’s a pleasure and a privilege to chat to you mate.

C – Who’s got the best backdrop, that’s the question.

J – It does look a little bit corporate doesn’t it.

C – I’ve been told about what you’re doing and that’s obviously part of what we’re going to talk about, it sounds amazing.

J – Thanks yeah.

C – I’m all up for giving people the military experience without sending them to war. I’m all for peace these days in my old age. But yes incredible. So what is the SF experience?

J – Well it started off back in 2013. Tragically three guys died in the Brecon Beacons on SAS reserve selection. There was a lot of news coverage at the time and it got quite political.

One of the guys fathers, I knew him briefly and I felt sorry for the parents because all this political stuff was going on in the press and the media. There was little compassion for

the parents and I felt like I wanted to do something for them.

Transcript from the ’15 (UK) Psychological Operations Group’ podcast

Chris and Tim

C – I was going to say how are you Tim, and now I’m going to say how are you colours?

T – I’m great thanks.

C – Is that the same in the army, we call our colour sergeants, colours and that’s an acceptable thing to call them.

T – No, in the army it’s called colour, without the letter ‘s’ on the end. It’s quite funny because I worked with the marines quite a bit. I did three deployments with three commando brigade and they were all calling me colours. When I moved into London, they all called me Sir. Then I had an opportunity to go back and work with my regiment and they were calling me colour, so it was quite bizarre the way I was being treated with the different regiments.

Bad Lads Army | WO2 Nooky Nauyokas

Richard Carlton Nauyokas is a British television personality, who between 2002-2006 appeared as a military instructor in the Bad Lads Army reality television series which re-created British National Service military training from the 1950s. A former professional soldier with the British Army, he now runs a motivational training consultancy called Not All Bad.

Transcript snippet from ‘Bad Lads Army | WO2 Nooky Nauyokas’ podcast

Chris and Nooky

C – Sergeant Major, how are you?

N – I’m alright, it’s been a long time since I was called that.

C – Respect where respects due.

N – Very Kind.

C –  Was it hard for your ego in the Bad Lad series where you have to be a corporal?

N – No, not really. I’ve been a military training instructor all my life and you train recruits at the level you train recruits at. I’d actually applied for the role as a Sergeant Major. The guy thought I looked too young to be a Sergeant Major of that era and offered me a part-time corporal role. Which means I went on weekends or on their days off. So I decided it was a bit of exposure in the direction I wanted to go, so I accepted it. It then turned out that the guy who had my original place, was an actor and they wanted someone who’d had a military background. My background gave the qualification I needed to do that job. So they sacked the actor and gave me the job.
