Paul Davison

Worked as a pharmacist in the North east of England for 30 years with experience in mental health and substance misuse. Whilst working in drug and alcohol became involved with some veterans who had struggled since leaving the army and became involved with some of the local organizations available to help their recovery.

On attending an RMA weekend with my uncle (ex bootneck colour sergeant) attended Cameron’s lecture on T4V and thought the idea to help individuals proactively was a great idea and although not a ex bootneck asked if I could help.

Having completed the T4V training and working with 2 ex marines in the area am pleased I am involved the support is excellent and feel am making a difference.

As ex RAMC I have joined the Tyneside RMA as an associate member and have to say they could not have made me feel more welcome. A great local association willing to help in any way they can.

Brian Geoffrey Penn

Born 1950 in Kingston Upon Hull. My Father was ex-Royal Navy, and my Brother joined the RN (fleet air arm), as well as two sisters. I played rugby from the age of 8 and I joined Marine Cadets in 1961, a good grounding.
I started work in a timber yard making frames for housing of all shapes and sizes before I joined the Corps in 6 September  1966 aged 16 y 6 days in JE 30 squad with 63 other prospective bootnecks. We passed out with only 32.
 
I was drafted to H.M.S. Mohawk for nearly 3 years, during my time I played rugby around the world. Then to R.M.B  Eastney for the MT course. I got married in 1970 and we had three sons and now have five grand children . Sadly we lost our eldest son when he was only five years old . After Eastney  I was drafted to 45 Cdo in Plymouth and shortly after the Unit moved to Arbroath with me driving a 1945 water Bowzer (probably still there). Having taken part in N.I, and Norway, my next draft was to R.M.B. Deal .
 
After leaving the corps I worked in various jobs, including a Health and safety and training officer working at petro/ chemicals in north Lincolnshire . Then a four year post with the Community Health council inspecting Hospitals, care homes, and a remit for Mental Health, children and family services, learning disability services when they changed from institutions to Community based homes and supporting people. As part of Unison, I was a steward and the assistant Branch secretary and Health and safety officer.
 
My wife and I also belonged to St John ambulance working with youth as volunteers. My wife gained the rank of Commisioner for youth and I had a cadet division. I qualified as a trainer in first aid assisting a colleague in teaching and developing the first children and baby first aid courses. I was honoured with the Order of St John of Jerusalem and Hospitallers.
 
I have worked for the past 22 years for the local council with special needs adults and now looking forward to retiring and putting some time back into voluntary work as a TRiM practitioner.
