14 INT | Op Banner | Martin Edwards Royal Marines

Martin Edwards was a Royal Marine and went on to be an operator in the elite 14th Intelligence unit. Originally from Rhyl, Martin escaped a horrific childhood to forge out a successful and varied career. He managed to retire as a multi-millionaire. His best-selling book, ‘Ultimate Survivor’ tells a mind-blowing story of IRA ambushes and run-ins with Sinn Fein politicians. Add to the mix a few military coups and being a bodyguard to royalty.

Transcript from ’14 INT | Op Banner’ podcast

Martin – They both had the same injuries as the bullets had gone through their stomach. James had gone for his pistol and taken a lot out, so she sat with him as he died in the hospital. I was on control because you have one operator doing the radio to call people in and the two operators. Well unfortunately he died bless him. I was going to go back in the marines until I was interviewed by a major who called me a fucking cowboy.

There was about a month before I said no and so when I went back I was all bravado. This is where I followed McGuinness into a shop. You get all cocky don’t you at the end of your tour, nothing can touch me. So I’m doing a foot patrol through Derry and McGuinness walks into this shop.
