After graduating from Sheffield University, I was commissioned into the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME). I served 5 years in the Regular Army in BAOR, Colchester and Berlin; and another 30 years in the Territorial and Reserve Army including an operational tour to Iraq in 2006.
In civilian life I joined Thorn EMI as an ROV pilot and team leader working for 5 years at the British Underwater Test and Evaluation Centre in the West Highlands before moving south to become first a sonar analyst and later an engineering project manager.
I moved to a job with Thorn Transit Systems International in Wells in '97 as a bid and project manager in mass transit fare collection systems.
In '99 I joined the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency, later QinetiQ, working in Farnborough, Bristol and Boscombe Down in the management of various maritime and airborne Test and Evaluation projects retiring in 2010.
