After 28 years in the Royal Marines, rising through the ranks to a Senior Non-Commissioned Officer, before receiving his commission as an officer and finishing in the Service as a Major, he then spent six years in the Army before retiring to work as a helicopter instructor.

But he maintained his military connections by joining the Royal Naval Reserve Air Branch, where he is assigned as an operations officer with the Commando Helicopter Force.
