With photographs and articles have been published internationally in VICE, Vanity Fair, Sunday Express, Mirror, Guardian & Sunday Times Magazine. His books include, ‘The Myth Of The Airborne Warrior’ and ‘Pig’s Disco’.

Transcript from ‘3 Para In Northern Ireland’ podcast

Stuart – I was waiting to go to Somalia with Vice and then that changed. We were then going to go to Nigeria. I had about 500 pounds worth of inoculations in my arm from this Harley street clinic. Going nowhere, so I wrote this radio play called, ‘Pig’s Disco’. It sort of started because 1990 was a really full-on year. A lot of stuff happened and then we were on Christmas party guard duty at the palace. Anyway one of the senior guys from from the platoon was going, have you ever tried any acid?

Falklands War 40th Anniversary | UNTOLD Stories | Bought The T-Shirt

Falklands War 40th Anniversary features veterans from the army, navy and marines, who fought to retake the British Islands.

Falklands War 40th Anniversary | UNTOLD Stories

The Falklands War was instigated on April 2nd 1982, when General Galtieri’s Argentine forces invaded the Falkland Islands and South Georgia. 68 Royal Marines who were newly stationed on the islands, fought a determined battle against overwhelming Argentine forces. With little options available, Governor Rex Hunt implimented a ceasefire, asking the Royal Marines to stand-down. Unfortunately for the Argentine forces, Margaret Thatcher’s government was intent on retaking British territory back. Her government quickly set about sending a taskforce over 8000 miles, to take back the islands. In this Falklands 40th anniversary podcast, we hear from the troops who won the battles. Their actions ultimately led to Galtieri’s dictatorship coming to an end.

Transcript from ‘Falklands War 40th Anniversary’ podcast

Ricky – There were not quite 70 of us today and when we come back, we’re bringing the whole corps and there’ll be seven thousand of us. He said, you should have seen him, the guy was crying.

Andy – The company commander had called us in and he told us about the battle of Goose Green. That was the 28th of May. That was the day Colonel Jones was killed with 17 others of his battalion. I was in the first land battle and up to that point, we had no idea it was happening. My mother in Wales knew more about the Falklands war than I did and it came as a complete surprise to discover a battalion attack had been put in. It was a very gutsy thing to do and I’ve got great respect for the paras who were massively outnumbered with none of the support they expected.

To hear their C.O. had been killed along with everybody else was a real shock. The BBC world service told the world, including the enemy that we were about to attack. Colonel Jones said to his own group that he was going to sue the bastards when he got back and obviously he didn’t.

Transcript from ‘Parachute Regiment To DJ Legend’ podcast

Danny – My love for music started at a very young age, through my mother having the radio on. My father worked at a printers so he’d either be sleeping during the day or at work.

I loved records at family parties and I used to put the records on. I just loved music from a very young age. My imagination was making this picture of the studio on on a ship, somewhere off the coast in the Atlantic. That’s where it started, collecting records at a very young age and I wanted to be on the radio.

The Battle For Mount Longdon | A Falklands War Special | #186

The battle for Mount Longdon features James O’Connell, formerly of 3 Para, speaking about his experience during The Falklands War in 1982.

The Battle For Mount Longdon | A Falklands War Special | #186

Under cover of darkness 3 Para began their assault on Mount Longdon in June 1982. The three platoons of B Company each approached the mountain silently, treading carefully through a series of defensive minefields. Following on from an explosion, fighting quickly escalated with shocking speed and severity. The ensuing battle resulted in some of the harshest close-hand fighting experienced by British troops, since the Korean war.

Transcript from ‘The Battle For Mount Longdon’ podcast.

Chris – James, was it disappointing that you were being inserted by boat as opposed to coming from the sky?

James – With the distance you knew it wasn’t going to happen. We sailed down on the Camberra with all our parachute kit. We were ready to go any way we could. It would have been legendary wouldn’t it?

Transcript from ‘SAS Parachuting Into The South Atlantic’

Bob – So that was The Falklands and two years before that, we had The Iranian Embassy seige in London. I was on the top floor going in from the roof. It’s all part of being in a team. I had the job of lowering the explosives over the stairwell. If anybody watches the Iranian Embassy BBC clip on Youtube, there’s a big explosion and then there’s some journalists saying, ‘That was a bomb’. Then you then see the lads climbing out. You know, the four lads of the 30,000 that climbed out onto the balcony.

Serving Royal Marines Commandos David Bruce and Sam Edwards together with former Royal Marines and recovering veterans Junior Mcilhiney and Will Schweppes rowed across the Atlantic Ocean, honouring the Cockleshell Heroes, to support of the Royal Marines Charity and raising almost £50,000

Transcript from ‘Royal Marines Commandos Cockleshell Endeavour’

W – We were always clipped onto the boat at all times whenever we were on deck, so when we were changing over, we’d always make sure we we’re clipping on to the the safety line. We’d obviously be wearing a life jacket or we had little climbing up harnesses which we took the leg loops out, so we’re just using the belt.

Robin Horsfall and Chris Thrall discuss life, death, poetry and everything in between.

Transcript from ‘SAS Trooper & Royal Marines Commando’ podcast

R – It’s a work of art and you know it has a limited audience, but I’m glad it’s out there.

C – You’re obviously very well read.  How did you get into writing and have you always been a reader?

R – I’ve always loved books. I love books more than television. I think being a soldier, I didn’t like the idea of going into the tv room and not being able to watch the program I wanted to because the other lads were watching Top of the Pops.

Executed In The Falklands | Podcast #173

Executed In The Falklands

Brian Short joined the Royal Marines, not as a commando but as a bandsman. The Royal Marines Band is the finest military marching band in the world, but this doesn’t mean they don’t go to war. In this emotional podcast Brian tells his traumatic story, dealing with both Argentine and British casualties.

Transcript from ‘Executed In The Falklands’ podcast

B – I very much knew in my own mind at that time, that we were going to win this war. Not because what I or the band were doing, but when you saw the professionalism and the fitness of the marines and the paras, you were training every day on Canberra. We know what they go through at Lympstone. I had no doubt that whoever they were going up against, these boys were going to commit acts of gross violence against the enemy and they were going to win.

C – I’m just looking at your notes and I’m trying not to get ahead of ourselves Brian. So what was D-Day in San Carlos like?

GO! GO! GO! SAS Iranian Embassy Siege Rusty Firmin

Rusty Firmin was Special Air Service (SAS) Blue Team and back door Assault Team Leader, at the Iranian Embassy Siege. He served in SAS B Squadron, HQ Squadron 23 SAS permanent staff instructor and in 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery. He went on to work as a security consultant, close protection operative, security manager, author, speaker and consultant.

Transcript from ‘GO! GO! GO! SAS Iranian Embassy Siege’ podcast

C – All the preparations are in place. You’re running on adrenaline  and you’re about to put your life on the line for the very last time. Just as you’re going in, The BBC broadcast your secret to the  whole world.  What what was all that all about?

R – You know at the end of the day there’s no televisions inside the embassy that I’m aware of. That’s exactly what they would do. Don’t forget they’ve been sat outside there themselves from day one and cameras glued to the balcony front.
