    Went to see him other night in leeds.

    Parachute Reg PT medal and best recruit.

    Commando course Kingsbadge

    Selection pass first time.


    What was funny was him showing his pass out photo with wings and 2 service medals. He said he got smashed throughout training for it.

    What a man.

    Like 99% of all who have done selection.
    The other 1% having done the full selection and then failed at the very end came back a year later and did the whole of selection again.:cool:
    Passed.
    Now that is impressive.:):):)

    Any previous service opens you up to some rigorous banter. Just have to laugh it off and take it.

    I'm all for redemption and rebuilding one's life but before anyone starts constructing a shrine to Mr Middleton bear in mind that he wasn't shy of sticking the boot into a female Police officer. For which he was convicted and served time in HMP custody. But we all make mistakes and life moves on.

    He seems like a top bloke. Wish I could go and see him myself! Enjoy.

    Interesting:

    Sentenced to 14 months in May 2013, served four months.

    The rehabilitaion period (4 years) commenced July 2015, so in July 2019 he is technically no longer a convicted criminal under employment law.

    A fourteen month custodial sentence is going some, for a supposedly first-time offender. Rest assured that was not a minor incident.

    Just to add to the posts above by Rover and Arny...

    Back in the early 1990s Lofty Wiseman and others did a series of lectures at the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington. One of the other lecturers—a snake expert—once released several bags of big reptiles into the auditorium, but that's another story. :)

    Lofty didn't remove his shirt to reveal an oiled torso at any point while he spoke about a wide range of expedition topics, so no modern media flim-flam. Simply an inspirational speaker with a vast amount of global experience—operational and civilian—which he conveyed in a humble and understated manner. A top bloke.

    As a young kid I got his SAS survival manual for a Christmas present. Going out and building shelters and traps to catch rabbit during the summer months was an amazing experience.

    An inspirational character. What you see is what you get!

    Very interesting. I hear a lot of guys from Documentaries say why they join the SAS and most say what Lofty says about the *text deleted* discipline and don't get treated like a kid. It's all self disciplined and get treated and spoke to like a man and much better life overall. Very interesting.
