Transcript from ‘Battle-Scarred To Bushcraft’ podcast

Nick – One of my other roles was to drive a light-skinned Land Rover or a Jackal, which was one of these new-age fancy 6.8 liter super turbocharged engine things. The only downside is that and Land Rover had about this much armor, just two doors armor plated, doors strapped on that finished about sort of shoulder height and that was it. The rest was just, take your chance you know. You’re rolling around in a wadi with a 50 cal barrel inches behind your head.
