42 Commando Royal Marines Battle For Mount Harriet

Jeff Williams of 42 Commando, tells the amazing story of how Mount Kent was secured, followed by the subsequent battle for Mount Harriet. He was a young corporal at the time of the Falklands War. Jeff served in 42 Commando’s HQ and finished his military career as a Warrant Officer Class 2. (WO2)

Transcript from ’42 Commando Royal Marines Battle For Mount Harriet’ podcast

Jeff – I spoke to a lot of the guys about it and they all thought it was an April fool. We didn’t believe they could have done it but they had and so we’re all fired up then to go. We should point out here it wasn’t a surrender, it was a ceasefire. The governor said, you know there’s no point, so he ordered the guys to put their weapons down.

We traveled down to union and had a couple of days to get ready. I remember getting all the kit and and checking everything was right. I wasn’t supposed to go to the Falklands, but being irritating, I went up to the company commander and said, look I want to go. He said look you’re on a senior command course and that’s important in your life. I said I don’t care, I’ve got to go.

Transcript from ‘Who Dares Wins’ podcast

Phil – Yes I was in the S.A.S. and yes I’ve been on television and yes I’ve also had some major problems in my life. It’s not all over and you don’t give up at the first hurdle. You don’t just go, ‘Oh I’ve had a few problems and boom it’s all over, the world’s ending’. It’s not that bad if you still have oxygen in your lungs and there’s still something you can do about it.

Elite Forces Discuss Flying Planes & Jumping | Jamie Hull SAS | #256

Elite Forces Discuss Flying Planes & Jumping, features SAS veteran, Jamie Hull who jumped from a burning airplane.

Elite Forces Discuss Flying Planes & Jumping | Jamie Hull SAS | Bought The T-Shirt

Jamie Hull is a veteran of the Special Air Service Reserve. Whilst out on a routine solo flight, his aeorplane’s engine caught fire. With flames encroaching his limbs, Jamie kept his head and remembered his flight instructor’s advice to, ‘Fly the damn plane!’ After Jamie had brought the plane down to a slightly safer altitude, he climbed out onto the wing and made a jump for it. The jump alone caused great damage to his body and with four degree burns, there seemed little chance of survival. Jamie sustained 60 per cent third-degree burns to his body, tissue scarring and internal injuries. He was given only a five per cent chance of survival.

Transcript from ‘Elite Forces Discuss Flying Planes & Jumping Out Of Them’ podcast

Jamie – They switch off with the supervision and they let them get on with it because they know they’re safe. They’re in the lounge, the snug or their bedroom and they’re watching untold amounts and a lot of it’s uncensored.

Bravo Three Zero | Des Powell SAS | Bought The T-Shirt Podcast #243

Bravo Three Zero features Des Powell, who served in the Parachute regiment and the Special Air Service, during the first Gulf War.

Bravo Three Zero | Behind Enemy Lines | Des Powell SAS

Des Powell served in the Parachute Regiment as a sergeant major and served another 20 years in the SAS. A former PT instructor in 1 PARA, he became the Unarmed Combat and Fitness instructor for B Squadron SAS. He helped pioneer HALO, HAHO and other covert airborne entry techniques. The SAS were called upon to hunt down the mobile Scud rocket launchers in Iraq. Much has been written about the ill-fated Bravo Two Zero patrol. Des has set the record straight with his exceptional book, ‘SAS Bravo Three Zero, The Explosive Untold Story’.

Transcript from ‘Bravo Three Zero’ podcast

Des – Parachuting can be high altitude, which is HALO high altitude low opening and here’s HAHO, high altitude high opening. It’s to deal with oxygen and you’d normally jump in at night, at 25,000 feet. That’s approximately five miles up.

I was in Air Troop B-Squadron and I really enjoyed my time there. I’ve talked about Air Troop, Mountain, Boat and Mobility. All the soldiers have the same skills, it’s just how we gain entry to a particular conflict zone, that are different.

23 SAS Continuation Training | Nick Grainge | UKSF | Podcast #235

23 SAS continuation training, features Nick Grainge, who is a special forces veteran and creator of, ‘Elite Outdoor Fitness’.

23 SAS Continuation Training | Nick Grainge

Nick Grainge is a highly successful athlete and veteran of 23 Special Air Service. In this podcast, Nick explains a little about continuation training within the reserve special-forces. Nick’s company, Elite Outdoor Fitness, offers a comprehensive course for beginners to pro-atheletes. Their former UK Special Forces team nurtures positivity, motivation and momentum to help you achieve your fitness goals.

Transcript from ’23 SAS Continuation Training’ podcast

Nick – To know that you’re okay, you need to be working hard and go on that hill with weight. You don’t go out and just wear a pair of boots, you should be running five hundred meters in a pair of boots or walking around with them and then do one mile. Then doing two miles, four miles and then ten miles. After a while you just do it, don’t you? It’s not about just lobbing straight in there.

If you break your training down very specifically and then start to put it all together, you start taxing your body and there is a lot of research that’s been done recently. One of the guys that’s part of it, got a quite high acclaimed award. One of them’s got a Nobel prize as well. There’s three elements within our bodies and systems that normally are relatively dormant. A lot of research has proven that if you can stimulate these responses, this fight or flight or this defense mechanism, these elements fire off and they they suggest at the moment that it can contribute to maybe fourteen extra years of life.

Could YOU Pass SAS Selection? | Nick Grainge | Podcast #228

Could YOU Pass SAS Selection features Nick Grainge who tells us about the arduous selection training for the reserve special-forces.

Could YOU Pass SAS Selection? | Nick Grainge

Nick Grainge is a highly successful athlete and creator of ‘Elite Outdoor Fitness’. In this podcast, Nick gives us his experience of going through selection in order to join 23 Special Air Service. From the Brecons mountains, to the notorious interrogation phase, Nick endured all to attain the coveted sand beret of the world’s most elite special-forces.

Transcript from’ Could YOU Pass SAS Selection?’ podcast

Nick – I think the first step that people need to make is, just try and find out as much information as possible. There’s a lot of information out there nowadays. You mentioned on the last podcast, that this is an open book to a certain extent. Certainly with 23, there’s a lot of open source information out there and if you go to a recruiting office, you can kind of get a really good understanding of what kind of level of fitness you need to go through, to start that process. You can get quite good understanding.

23 SAS in Iraq | Nick Grainge | Bought The T-Shirt Podcast #223

23 SAS in Iraq, features Nick Grainge who served with the British special-forces, going on to become a highly successful athlete.

23 SAS in Iraq | Nick Grainge

Nick is a highly successful athlete across a broad spectrum of physical and mental disciplines. He has won competitions internationally across a range of events. These include sprint triathlons, ultra mountain races and long expeditions across the world with the Special Forces. In this podcast, Nick tells us about his time as a 23 SAS operative whilst serving in the middle-east.

Transcript from ’23 SAS in Iraq’ podcast

Nick – When I joined HRC I had to do a separate selection. It was devised by a bit of a legend that was in 22. I won’t mention his name, if you don’t mind, but he was an inspirational character and helped me facilitate my move forward. In actual fact, he was the one that approached me on a number of times and said, ‘I want you to go for HRC’.

What we found was that everybody from 22 and 23, were very capable SF soldiers. When they went to 22, they all got stand-up fails at the end. They weren’t right for that unit and much later, the guy who devised HRC, had a look at that whole political kind of situation I believe. I’d left by that time in 2004 and said, look this isn’t good enough. These are these are lads that essentially I have trained, because I devised this unit called HRC.

SAS Trooper Bring Me The Arse Of Saddam | Bought The T-Shirt #221

SAS trooper bring me the arse of Saddam, features SAS legend, Nigle ‘Spud’ Ely, with his tale of attaining part of the famous statue of Saddam Hussain.

SAS Trooper Bring Me The Arse Of Saddam

Nigel ‘Spud’ Ely’s soldiering career was with the Parachute Regiment, followed by the SAS. Spud then found work as a Military Consultant and a war photojournalist. His career has taken him in to some of the most deadly, high-octane, violent battles of the modern era. From Northern Ireland to Iraq, Spud has been in the thick of the most ferocious fighting of modern times. His book, ‘Bring Me The Arse Of Saddam’, is his story of trying to keep hold of his momento from Iraq.

Transcript from ‘SAS Trooper Bring Me The Arse Of Saddam’ podcast

Nigel – Yes I’ve got a book coming out in March next year, called ‘Goose Green uncensored voices’. It took me three years to put together and I basically traveled up and down this great nation of ours, to interview the guys that were there, including the civilians, the navy and air force. Also the guys that work there at the front and the guys that helped us win the battle. So that’s kind of an exciting project that’s been reviewed at the Frankfurt book show this week. I’m really excited about that. I left the paras, joined the S.A.S. and I was one of the youngest to join at the time.

I left the the S.A.S. then went on to do military contracting which they now call, ‘The business’, in Iraq and Afghanistan. We used to call it body guarding but now they call it C.P. don’t they? Then I became a war correspondent and I covered a bit of Afghanistan. Basically I wanted to cover the invasion or liberation of Iraq, depending on what side of the political fence you sit at.

SAS Operator JUMPS From BURNING PLANE | Jamie Hull | #193

SAS operator jumps from burning plane, features Jamie Hull, who whilst on fire himself, made the decision to jump from his burning plane.

SAS Operator JUMPS From BURNING PLANE

SAS trooper and trainee pilot Jamie Hull, was flying solo when his aircraft caught fire. It should have been the end of his life, but it was the beginning of his story. With flames up to his chin, he brought the plane in, climbed out and jumped from the wing. As he lay on the ground, fully conscious, waiting for the emergency services, he could smell his flesh burn.

Transcript from SAS Operative JUMPS From Burning Plane

Jamie – I’ve got my left hand on the control stick, my right hand on the throttle and I’m banking around to my left. The fire externally that I’d witnessed outside through the canopy window, breached the cockpit internally and suddenly I looked down at my feet working on the rudder pedal. I looked down and I could see the yellow flame sort of breach and the flames were lapping around my feet and my ankles. So you know I won’t deny that initially there was starting to be this panic in my mind and I’m starting to take stock of what’s going on inside that small two-seater chamber.
