More About Me

What I want you to know about me...

My two kids are important to me. I love my daughter Beckie and son Callum to bits.However it would seem that I am not very good when it comes to relationships and I tend to hit a self destruct button on more than one occasion. I honestly have not really had all that many serious or meaningful relationships in my life. But when I did. I was totally loyal to them and with the ladies concerned totally in love.

I served as a soldier for eighteen years with the British Army, and work for them again as a civil servant for the past thirty years.In that time I managed to travel the world and enjoyed myself immensely.

In 1982 I was part of 2 Para group, 4 Field Regt Royal Artillery.I served as the signaller in the Forward Observation Officers Party.
In later years I've spoken to several ex-soldiers who have experienced emotional problems and have been unable to come to terms with what they saw and of the events which they took part in during their experiences in the South Atlantic during 1982.

Through both their and my thoughts/experiences, I have written some poetry that expresses those times and since.
I am also aquainted with a lot of ex-soldiers who have not experienced any emotional problems what so ever.
Of which I hope and believe that I am one.

It may be however that we are merely Timebombs waitng to explode.
God help us from the consequences if that should be the case.
As long as there are people and nations who are unable to defend themselves from aggressors there will always be a big brother waiting in the wings to sort things out.Hopefully he will be doing it for the right reasons and not just to shag the other guys sister.
