Profile Information

Tell us about yourself, including hobbies and interests
Married to Margaret for over 40 years. Two grown-up daughters and one teenage granddaughter, who live just 5 minutes drive away, so we see a lot of each other.

I served in the army with the 17th/21st Lancers for 9 years, leaving only because of a serious injury on duty. Saw service in Aden, Bahrain and Kuwait whilst serving aboard Royal Navy tank landing ships. Then posted to Germany for the remainder of my time.

After recovering sufficiently from my injury, I joined The Nottinghamshire Ambulance Service. During my 25 years service I worked at most levels, from accident and emergency, through control room and admin posts, until retiring as Deputy Chief Ambulance Officer.

Margaret and I love to travel, particularly cruising, but also enjoy lots of short breaks and days out closer to home. My main hobbies are photography, gardening, and writing poetry.
