Many years ago, I qualified as a Police Sniper. We completed the full RM Sniper course and I can say, without hesitation, that it was the toughest course that I ever completed.
To this day, it is the only certificate that adorns the walls in my house...all others have long since been binned.
The gentleman who instructed and mentored me throughout the course was a Constable Peter James Leach.
'Leachy' would never discuss his role in the Falklands war, but the rumours were rife.
Today I found out that he had to sell his medals.
To those who can be arsed to read the link all the way to the bottom, you will gain an insight into the bravest, hardest, funniest bloke I ever had the pleasure to work with.
Cheers Pete, I owe you one.
