A soldiers true story of life on the front line.
on 17 June 2017
An excellent written story of Nigel ( Spud ) Ely's life as a member of Britain's Parachute Regiment and elite Special Air Service ( SAS ).
The story leads from his early days, and into the tough training required to pass P company and serve within the ranks of the Parachute Regiment. His experience of the Warrenpoint attack in Northern Ireland, and also the brutal battle at goose green during the Falklands war would deliver enough emotional stress to last a lifetime. However for Spud, he wanted even more. He went on to pass the tough selection course and serve as a elite SAS member. Total respect for this man.
