Transcript from ‘The UNTOLD Falklands War’ podcast
Dave – I saw this advert and decided that’s what I wanted to do. I sort of gave up on education. I just did the the minimum and I always joked that I got a low level in geography CSE grade one, so I could read a map in the marines. That’s always been my sort of narrative about my school experience. So I joined two weeks after my sixteenth birthday in 1974. I didn’t want to be carrying heavy weights, so I decided I fancied being a signaller and I went on to do an RS course.
