time. These are some of the elements that have made up the adventures
and challenges of my life.

challenged by the loss of my Mother and Brother before reaching the age
of eighteen and lived in a rough environment from an early age and this
pressure only built as I grew in age. Clashes with drug pushers and
dealers saw me sentenced to three years for G. B. H, which was suspended
on the condition I served six years in the army under court order in
1958. My military career followed finding myself in combat across the

programmes down into
Training Manuals with a link inside to my
PowerPoint Slides and Handout [no extra cost] which makes it
easier to produce in Paperbacks and hardbacks.
In the last few years of my training career, I went to various
organisations once a week to give a talk on a topic that the
organisation chose. At the end of each discussion, I handed out
sheets of paper with information that I had written or collected
stapled together for them to read at home. Hence the name,
