I started in 2 PARA in C Coy as a rifle bod then transferred to Support Coy to the Anti Tank Platoon. Some of the lads, my platoon sergeant Dave Joyce inparticular, used to call me "Big & Daft"! Cheers for that Dave!!! lol I served two operational tours in Iraq, Op Telic 4 and Op Telic 7.
I did countless Airborne exercises and was well known for my marksmanship on the ranges.I finally signed off after the death of my Platoon Commander Richard Holmes and my mate Pte Lee Ellis from the detonation of an improvised explosive device (IED).
