Phil Campion is a veteran of military operations in just about every conflict-prone corner of the world. He served with the Royal Hampshires, passed through Commando and Parachute Regiment selection, before being badged with 22 SAS. He left the British Army in his early thirties, with the rank of Staff Sergeant, and started working on the private military circuit.

In this interview, Phil sat down with us for an interview in London. In this first episode, he talks about being adopted, growing up in children’s home, and how it led him to join the British SAS.
