C – I should just say that Mark Ryan is a big Hollywood star. He is also a former intelligence operative, which is quite relevant to the video that I’d made with John Hegan the other day. Mark has also starred in the film, ‘Who Dares Wins’ alongside Lewis Collins.

M – Lewis was a lad and a great character. He was the James Bond we never had.

Transcript from ‘SAS Parachuting Into The South Atlantic’

B – So that was The Falklands and two years before that, we had The Iranian Embassy seige in London. I was on the top floor going in from the roof. It’s all part of being in a team. I had the job of lowering the explosives over the stairwell. If anybody watches the Iranian Embassy BBC clip on Youtube, there’s a big explosion and then there’s some journalists saying, ‘That was a bomb’. Then you then see the lads climbing out. You know, the four lads of the 30,000 that climbed out onto the balcony.

Robin Horsfall and Chris Thrall discuss life, death, poetry and everything in between.

Transcript from ‘SAS Trooper & Royal Marines Commando’ podcast

R – It’s a work of art and you know it has a limited audience, but I’m glad it’s out there.

C – You’re obviously very well read.  How did you get into writing and have you always been a reader?

R – I’ve always loved books. I love books more than television. I think being a soldier, I didn’t like the idea of going into the tv room and not being able to watch the program I wanted to because the other lads were watching Top of the Pops.

Executed In The Falklands | Podcast #173

Executed in The Falklands is part of the Brian Short story. Brian chats with Commando Chris Thrall.

Executed In The Falklands

Brian Short joined the Royal Marines, not as a commando but as a bandsman. The Royal Marines Band is the finest military marching band in the world, but this doesn’t mean they don’t go to war. In this emotional podcast Brian tells his traumatic story, dealing with both Argentine and British casualties.

Transcript from ‘Executed In The Falklands’ podcast

B – I very much knew in my own mind at that time, that we were going to win this war. Not because what I or the band were doing, but when you saw the professionalism and the fitness of the marines and the paras, you were training every day on Canberra. We know what they go through at Lympstone. I had no doubt that whoever they were going up against, these boys were going to commit acts of gross violence against the enemy and they were going to win.

C – I’m just looking at your notes and I’m trying not to get ahead of ourselves Brian. So what was D-Day in San Carlos like?

History Bro | The Falklands Conflict

I chat with one of the channel’s biggest supporters, History Bro, about the Falklands Conflict. Or was it a war? We discuss.

Transcript from ‘History Bro The Falklands Conflict’

C – History Bro how are you?

HB – Hi Mr Thrall it’s a pleasure to have a bit of your time, I really appreciate it. If we could talk about the Falklands a bit, is that what we’ve got on the docket today?

C –  You can see just by looking at your channel and for everybody watching I suggest you do, you’ve got a fairly in depth understanding of history, compared to someone like myself and I think we could talk forever, but shall we talk about the Falklands?

HB – Yeah, I would really like to, it’s one of things when I first got in touch with you that really sprung to mind, with of course your history with the Royal Marines. Just to put it in a bit of context I’d like to say early on that neither of us where there if anyone’s under any weird idea. |I wasn’t even one years old, I was born in 1981 and I hadn’t even had my first birthday when the action went down on the Falklands there. I imagine you were ten or twelve at the time, that sort of age but it’s part of your regimental history.

SAS Legend On The Fight For Goose Green

Nigel ‘Spud’ Ely’s soldiering career in the Parachute Regiment, the SAS, as a Military Consultant and as a War Photojournalist has taken him in to some of the most high-octane battles of the modern era. From Northern Ireland, the Falklands, to Africa, Afghanistan and Iraq, Spud has been in the thick of the most ferocious battles of modern times. He writes with passion, pace and the knowledge of someone who’s seen it and done it; because he has.

Transcript from ‘SAS Legend On The Fight For Goose Green’ podcast

Chris and Nigel

C – So Spud, is there something that makes people stay around Hereford after they’ve served.

N – Umm, no, well I love it. I’m a city boy and I’m a country boy, but I wouldn’t say there’s much to keep the lads around here. As a percentage I guess there’s very few of us who live here. Most of the guys move back home or overseas. I mean the camp is only five miles away from me as the crow flies, from my place. It’s nine miles away and I’m on the flight path to the Beacons, I get a lot of air traffic sometimes, but they don’t fly low enough for me. They always stay up high and I think they should get a bit of low level training!

C – So Spud, how old were you when you joined the parachute regiment, did you join the paras first?

Ollie Ollerton from SAS Who Dares Wins (SBS Royal Marines Special Boat Service) as you’ve NEVER heard him before – don’t miss!

Transcript from ‘Ollie Ollerton Who Dares Wins’ podcast

Chris and Ollie

C – Ollie how are you brother?

O – I’m good mate, I’m really good, thanks for having me on.

C – Oh, I owe you a massive thanks, for several things. Not just the example you set, which is firing as I say. Also by doing myself and my girlfriend a massive favour by coming on the show. We have worked so hard now and you know you’ve walked that route yourself and taken action. You’ve been yourself, you’ve believed in your dream and if you don’t take action no one is going to do it for you. Forget the fear, take the action, but that doesn’t mean it’s not incredibly hard work. So the fact you’re helping me out Ollie by coming on for a chat, it’s massively appreciated and I know you are a busy man, with another book out.

O – Yeah it’s gone phenomenal but I just want to talk over that because you’ve hit the nail on the head there. A lot of people think by having a TV show and I’m sure we’ll talk about the TV show later. Especially the public points of view, they think it comes easy you know, they think motivation comes easy, they think it’s just a walk in the park, and that’s why both my books have been absolutely honest and also the reason the second book is called ‘Battle Ready’.

Stolen Valor Exposed The Truth Behind Walter Mitty

My most heroic guest to date helps me explore the truth behind veteran impersonation aka Water Mitty or Stolen Valor (valour – UK spelling)

Transcript snippet from ‘Stolen Valor Exposed | The Truth Behind Walter Mitty’ podcast

Chris and Ben

C – Ben, how are you brother?

B – I’m doing good how are you?

C – Running out of clever replies, that probably aren’t really that clever.

B – When someone asks me this at work or whatever my usual reply when someone asks me how are you? I answer loving life. No matter what type of day it is, it’s positive affirmation. Sometimes good is just as sufficient, but I think if you say that enough times it gets contagious and other people start to say it whether they mean it or not.

C – I don’t mean to be rude to my guests but they’ve got to sort out the way they fricking speak man. All this “I’m good”. This is England, we’re British and we’re very proud about that. We’re not nationalistic but we’re proud not to have to copy other countries. People can speak how they want, of course they can but I do think though. I think people who are easily swayed with their language just start saying what other people say. You know like this ‘passed’ thing instead of died. They use ‘passed’. I personally think there’s a lot to dissect there…

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…
