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.

Transcript from ‘The Exorcist Wanted Me Dead’ podcast

Andrew – I was living in Argentina and I saw on television there was this fella, this exorcist. He was saying that he could cure people of all sorts of diseases. Out in the suburbs of Buenos Aires, that’s where he was operating. I got in touch with him and said I’d like to go and sort of follow him around for the next couple of months.

My friend David is a director and he was in Argentina at the same time as me. The two of us were like, okay let’s go out in the middle of nowhere. I am the guy ringing the bells and the bells are supposed to stave off the devil. I would sort of kneel over this young woman who was seventeen. The first one was Natalia and she was like thirty odd and she was suffering with urges, pushes and intrusive thoughts.
