Joining me for this week’s podcast is former British Special Forces Operator James Glancy. James served for a number of years in the Royal Marine Commandos where he deployed into different areas around the world including Afghanistan. After a few combat deployments he went onto Special Forces selection and joined the Special Boat Service. During his operational service in Special Forces he was awarded the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross.
Since getting out of the military Glancy has hosted shows on the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. He’s a director of conservation charity, Veterans 4 Wildlife, where he focuses on the preservation of endangered species and combating the global trade in shark fins.
We discussed the history of Special Forces, the role of the Royal Marine Commandos, and many other topics. Enjoy.
