making the transition from a bootneck to a civvy was no easy task for me. After I got out I wrote the book Amongst The Marines and later I wrote Always A Marine. The second book described my journey into civvy street.

However, these years on I may have calmed down a bit, but am sure that part of me will ALWAYS be a Marine.


All the best

Yes I am. I wrote about my journey into the world of the ninjas in my second book, which closed out my story.

These days I still keep myself fit and train in Ninjutsu which is more or less a way of life now.

Back in the late 80s/early 90s there was a bootie (ex?) who ran a ninjutsu club in Guzz, with whom I was fortunate to train for a short time. He was at that time one of the country's few 3rd Dan grades. I think he went to the states.

This was my last newspaper interview:

This guy intoduced me to ninjutsu. I'm deeply saddened that some years later he took his own life.

Theres a good article in here if you look for it: Its titled Life in the Marines.

and one here too called Back In Civvy Street:

Also, the guy in my second book (Barty) is a 13th Dan now. He was a 10th Dan then, so I would imagine you may understand the level of tuition I have received over the years. Probably not but no big licks really.

Yes I have led an intersting life and yes I do get around a little on the websites.


Currently I'm working on a novel. I guess it would be prudent to do this as a follow up to my two biographies.
