Operator Bodyguard Soldier | Gina Allsop | Bought The T-Shirt Podcast

Gina Allsop’s military career started in the 30th Signals Regiment, nick-named the ‘Globetrotters’. In conflict or crisis, they were one of the first units out there due to their state of the art communications. Gina went on to train US Delta-Force and Navy Seals in surveillance and tactics. After serving all over the world, Gina was due to retire. Aged 30, her new career was working in close protection for high-profile personalities. She turned down the offer of being Britney Spears’ body guard, as she wouldn’t be able to work undercover again. Diagnosed with PTSD, Gina received help from SSAFA and took on her own charity events, to help raise money for other veterans.

Transcript from ‘Operator Bodyguard Soldier’ podcast

Gina – When I’m on tour I try and help the local community, so if there’s things set up, I will try and do it. I used to go and see the orphans when I had some down time. You used to go and and play with them and chat to them. That’s like you know, the reality of war isn’t it, because you do see that is quite heartbreaking. I remember we used to take chocolate bars and I had a big box of Twix and I got them all running at me and I was handing out twixes. This one little kid came up with his face covered in chocolate. I had to give him another one because it was like, the cheek of him was brilliant.
