First Into Action

Duncan Falconer joined the British Royal Marines at the age of 18. At 19 years of age, he attended SBS selection in Poole Dorset and was one of nine Marines to successfully complete the course out of 147 men. Most candidates are required to serve some time in a Commando unit before applying, however Duncan was given an exception. Later he was posted to 42 Commando as a career broadening opportunity. Duncan served the majority of his military service with the SBS. During his time in the military, he also served with the SAS and 14 Intelligence Detachment, deployed to Northern Ireland with each for one year and two and a half years respectively. After he left the Detachment he took a sabbatical for a year before returning to the SBS where he was posted to MAT (“Maritime Anti-Terrorism”) operations in which he was involved in a number of exercises retaking oil rigs and tankers.

Chris and Tony

C – Tony, how are you brother?

T – Good, nice to meet you Chris.

C – Yes, you as well, it’s the joys of podcasting, I get to meet some amazing people. All of whom have been just wonderful individuals. Also it’s not bad getting paid to chat is it?

T – I can think of worse things, we’ve been in worse situations haven’t we?

C – Can you imagine they had podcasting back when we had to do guard duty! We could have knocked out loads! So, as I’ve said to you before, my fans love all things military. There’s loads we could just talk about on that alone, and as I’m rapidly learning there’s so many people that have suffered some form of trauma. I think it’s the nature of the society we’re in that seeks to frighten us all the time. It’s set up to put fear in us through the media, and we’ve got this culture that makes people feel bad about themselves through the beauty and health magazines. So I’m just figuring out that it seems everyone has suffered some form of trauma.
