    Hi, from Brazil.

    Although I actually joined this Forum in 2009, I haven't participated. - No excuse really, except that I have been occupied on another Forum since 2003.
    Some here might recognise me/my name?

    I was born in England, and have loved firearms since my teens.
    Former Royal Marine Commando, nine years service, 1978 to 1987, which included four tours of duty in Northen Ireland plus the Falklands War.
    Emigrated to Brazil in 1988.
    Here I have done many things, including gold prospecting in the Amazon, and working security in Rio de Janeiro.

    I worked PSD in Iraq (Baghdad) in 2004 - 2005, getting shot for my trouble in an ambush. - No complaints, it goes with the job.

    Presently I'm searching for a trucking job.

    Glad to be here.

    You're an interesting guy. Hope to hear more of your experiences in NI, The Falklands and Iraq. Welcome aboard.

    Welcome from Iowa, USA! The two most fascinating (and kindest) individuals I've ever known are a father and son pair of retired Royal Marines, who for some reason, decided to retire to the U.S. and take up farming a mile from our local public shooting range! The Queen's loss was definitely our gain!
    Cheers, mate!
