Royal Marines Commandos Cockleshell Endeavour

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.

Transcript from ‘99% Need Not Apply’ podcast

Chris and Ryan

C – Ryan how are you brother?

R – Good buddy, how are you?

C – Yes, everyday is another day in paradise. I keep saying that several times a day I’m speaking to that many people! How have you been doing?

R – Not much really mate. Working, working and working.

C – I’m really conscious of our time and I want to get down to the nitty gritty because you and I had a little chat a few minutes ago. We’re brother Royal Marines. Obviously former marines because we’re all old now. I say that jokingly, I really honestly feel fourteen sometimes and I think I always have done. You’re down there in Australia and you’ve got a mental Instagram page on which you’re just completely honest about your past, your experiences good and bad and it really seems to be hitting the mark.

R – Yeah, I’ve been really lucky with it really I guess. There’s a big façade you can put up when you post stuff up on Instagram and I decided when I moved to Australia I was going to be real with everyone, and just say what was going on in my life and what’s happened throughout that process so maybe it can help another person or guy who is maybe in the same situation…

Hollywood Celebrity Bodyguard

Before he became a Hollywood bodyguard to the stars, Jack English served as a Royal Marines Commando in Afghanistan.

Transcript from ‘Hollywood Celebrity Bodyguard Jack English’ podcast

Chris and Jack

C – Jack, how are you brother?

J – Morning Chris, how you doing?

C – I’m doing phenomenal mate. I was thinking I need to come up with a new word because phenomenal isn’t good enough now! I was thinking phenmeganomical is that a word?

J – Go for it, just make it up. Brand it, that can be yours.

C – Don’t they say if a word appears more than three times in the media it goes into the English dictionary.

J – Something like that yeah!

C – I’m just going to say some keywords here because apparently YouTube pick up on the first things you talk about. So we’re going to say Royal Marines, Afghanistan, bodyguard and life coach. It doesn’t really bother me but I thought I’d give it a go and see if we got a higher rating on YouTube. So how’s life with you mate?

J – Life’s good mate, life’s good. Quite interestingly enough we’re in the Covid 19 lockdown in the current climate. I find myself to be enjoying it to be perfectly honest. I usually live a very busy, here, there and everywhere kind of life, which I thoroughly enjoy. Don’t get me wrong, I choose it, I love it. I usually get bored being in the same place for too long.

The SPECIAL FORCES Experience

Jason Bowen is a former Special Forces Signaller who now runs ‘The S.F. Experience’. The S.F. Experience is staffed by former elite operators from the SAS, SBS and SFSG to give members of the public a taste of the hardest military selection course in the world.

Transcript from ‘The SPECIAL FORCES Experience’ podcast

Chris and Jason

C – Jason how you doing mate?

J – I’m all good thanks Chris, it’s a pleasure and a privilege to chat to you mate.

C – Who’s got the best backdrop, that’s the question.

J – It does look a little bit corporate doesn’t it.

C – I’ve been told about what you’re doing and that’s obviously part of what we’re going to talk about, it sounds amazing.

J – Thanks yeah.

C – I’m all up for giving people the military experience without sending them to war. I’m all for peace these days in my old age. But yes incredible. So what is the SF experience?

J – Well it started off back in 2013. Tragically three guys died in the Brecon Beacons on SAS reserve selection. There was a lot of news coverage at the time and it got quite political.

One of the guys fathers, I knew him briefly and I felt sorry for the parents because all this political stuff was going on in the press and the media. There was little compassion for

the parents and I felt like I wanted to do something for them.

S – Yeah, currently on lockdown in Baghdad, Iraq yeah.

C – What position are you holding in there?

S – I’m basically working for a private security company. Part of the regional management team. So we basically oversee all the projects in our region and provide support for those projects.

C – If we go back to the beginning, it was 1 Para you were in?

S – Yeah, so I left school in the year 2000, always wanted to join the military, I had three other family members in the parachute regiment at the time, so my allegiance was to the parachute regiment. I was too young to join as an adult entry, so my only option was to go to the army foundation college in Harrogate…

C – Baz how are you brother?

B – Really well Chris, great to see you. I haven’t seen you in quite a while with the stuff going on, so it’s great to see your face mate.

C – Yes mate, and yours too. How are you feeling about tomorrow.

B – I’m ready, I’m a bit like you mate, I sort of decided to do this quite late, but fortunately I look after myself and do quite a lot of running anyway. My escape tends to be out on the moors near where I live, so I’ve really knuckled down and focused on doing this run in the last couple of weeks properly. It’s probably not the sort of time you should be giving yourself into an eighty mile run but…

Arctic Warfare Training AWT | Royal Marines Commando Unit

Ever wondered what it is like to fight in the Norwegian Arctic, carrying an eighty pound bergen on a pair of skis, jumping into ice-cold water and sleeping in a snowcave? In this podcast I talk about my arctic warfare training in Norway (AWT) in the first year of a Royal Marines Commando Unit.

Transcript snippet from ‘Arctic Warfare Training AWT’ podcast

Chris

C – Hello friends, I hope this finds you well. Welcome back to another in my what’s the royal marines really like series. I’ve been really looking forward to doing this for quite some time now, because I’m going to talk about Norway, which looking back at least was an experience I was so glad I went through, if maybe I wasn’t so happy at the time for reasons I’ll explain. So Norway is where the Royal Marines do their Arctic Warfare training. I first sort of came across the Norway experience as opposed to just hearing about it when I was on rear party at 42 Commando. So I left for training in February, bitterly cold when we did our commando tests and I went to 42 Commando which is at Bickley, just outside Plymouth, and I was on something called rear party which is basically guard duty. The reason being the whole unit were away on winter deployment or exercise and this was of course in Norway where 42 and 45 commando go every year, at least that’s how it was when I served…

C – Richard, how are you mate?

C – No, it’s an absolute pleasure. I was a bit thrown because I went to your website and the last time I went there it was Team Rubicon, and now it’s Operation React, and for these ageing braincells it threw me a little bit! So that’s to do with our cousins across the water is it?

R – Yeah Team Rubicon UK was a franchise of something that started in the States a few years ago. In America they’ve got a huge organisation, very capable but it does a different thing to what we do here, it’s just time to rebrand  the brand around what we do here around our British values, how we operate around the world and to show we’re now an English or United Kingdom operation, that’s why we’re now RE:ACT …
