Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and History Bro

C – History Bro how are you?

HB – Hi Mr Thrall it’s a pleasure to have a bit of your time, I really appreciate it. If we could talk about the Falklands a bit, is that what we’ve got on the docket today?

C –  You can see just by looking at your channel and for everybody watching I suggest you do, you’ve got a fairly in depth understanding of history, compared to someone like myself and I think we could talk forever, but shall we talk about the Falklands?

HB – Yeah, I would really like to, it’s one of things when I first got in touch with you that really sprung to mind with of course your history with the Royal Marines. Just to put it in a bit of context I’d like to say early on that neither of us where there if anyone’s under any weird idea. |I wasn’t even one years old, I was born in 1981 and I hadn’t even had my first birthday when the action went down on the Falklands there. I imagine you were ten or twelve at the time, that sort of age but it’s part of your regimental history…

Chris and Brian

C – Brian, how are you brother?

B – Yeah I’m good thank you. Thanks for having me on, I appreciate it. We’ve been trying for a while now so it’s good to get on.

C – Yeah, we seem to be passing ships, like I am with a lot of my guests on social media. We’re out there doing our stuff, when we finally get together it’s all good huh?

B – Absolutely, absolutely.

C – I’m going to start by asking where do you get you drive from Brian. We’ll probably come on to talk about everything you’ve been through which is enough to tread down ten men, if not a hundred. You’re so busy all the time, you tend to get so much done, is there any philosophy we can learn from there.

B – Do you know what, I’m not the Oracle and I’ll never claim to be. I’m just driven by hard work…

#150 SAS Legend On The Fight For Goose Green | Nigel Ely | Special Air Service | Bought The T-Shirt

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

Nigel ‘Spud’ Ely’s soldiering career in the Parachute Regiment, the SAS, as a Military Consultant and as a War Photojournalist has taken him in to some of the most high-octane battles of the modern era. From Northern Ireland, the Falklands, to Africa, Afghanistan and Iraq, Spud has been in the thick of the most ferocious battles of modern times. He writes with passion, pace and the knowledge of someone who’s seen it and done it; because he has.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Nigel

C – So Spud, is there something that makes people stay around Hereford after they’ve served.

N – Umm, no, well I love it. I’m a city boy and I’m a country boy, but I wouldn’t say there’s much to keep the lads around here. As a percentage I guess there’s very few of us who live here. Most of the guys move back home or overseas. I mean the camp is only five miles away from me as the crow flies, from my place. It’s nine miles away and I’m on the flight path to the Beacons, I get a lot of air traffic sometimes, but they don’t fly low enough for me. They always stay up high and I think they should get a bit of low level training!

C – So Spud, how old were you when you joined the parachute regiment, did you join the paras first? …

Steve Mathews fought with 1 Para in Iraq and went onto serve with the Special Forces Support Group. Steve explains all about the airborne brigade, the death of the military policeman at at Majar al-Kabir, how 1 Para almost jumped into battle, how the parachute course is run and his current work as a civilian security contractor in Iraq.

Chris and Steve

C – Steve how are you brother?

S – I’m good thank you how are you?

C – I’m very well mate, thank you for asking. You’re in Iraq as we speak?

S – Yeah, currently on lockdown in Baghdad, Iraq yeah.

C – What position are you holding in there?

S – I’m basically working for a private security company. Part of the regional management team. So we basically oversee all the projects in our region and provide support for those projects.

C – If we go back to the beginning, it was 1 Para you were in?

S – Yeah, so I left school in the year 2000, always wanted to join the military, I had three other family members in the parachute regiment at the time, so my allegiance was to the parachute regiment. I was too young to join as an adult entry, so my only option was to go to the army foundation college in Harrogate…
