Adrian Tudway

Adrian Tudway, currently aged 51, I joined the Corps at 16, on 23rd July 1979. After passing out, I was drafted to 45 Commando and served initially in Y Coy, then in Support Coy as an HW3 (A/TK). I deployed with 45 to West Belfast in 1981 during the ‘hunger strike’ tour aged 18, then throughout the Falklands campaign with 45 at 19. I remained with 45 until late 1982, then was drafted to HMS Warrior, where I remained until discharge in 1985.

On leaving the Corps, I immediately joined the Metropolitan Police as a Constable, quickly transferring to detective duties, where I have remained ever since. I have been fortunate to have had a very varied career, serving across all detective disciplines from homicide, through kidnap and terrorism. I am an accredited hostage negotiator and also do suicide and crisis intervention in London. I remain a serving officer, currently on a secondment to the Home Office.

I am an active member of the RMA and Commando 999, currently branch chairman at Windsor & District. I volunteered for training as a TRiM practitioner to be able to use skills developed in my police career, coupled with experience from my service, to help those of our Corps ‘family’ in times of crisis. I retain close links with the Corps and act as an informal mentor to bootnecks coming outside and looking at law enforcement as a second career.

I live in Hertfordshire and am a member of the Welwyn Garden City RMA.

Bernard Stonestreet

Bernard Stonestreet served with the Corps from 1960 -1975, Junior Marine (JE No 6 Squad) to SNCO DL, then commissioned Lieutenant (SD) in 1973. During that time he served at the Depot Deal, Lympstone, 40, 41, and 45 Commando units. He transferred to the Royal Corps of Transport, serving in BAOR, Maritime HQ and Northern Ireland, retiring as Major in 1984.

His civilian career involved PR, political and industrial representation, journalism and business management. Currently is involved with recycling as a partner in a Midland based company which leaves time for working with charities. He spent 18 months as volunteer chairman of a 10,000 household community forum for one of the deprived areas in the UK (2002/2004). Since 2009 to present has held and continue to hold the post of Divisional Secretary and caseworker for SSAFA in Hasting & Rother, one of the largest SSAFA Divisions in the Home Counties. Now he is privileged to be able to offer time to support fellow ex-Royal Marines in need.

William Dooligan

William Dooligan

Bill Dooligan, aged 52, joined the Corps at 16 in October 1977 with 232 Troop. I served with HQ & Sigs and 42 Commando RM. Was a Unit Armourer for most of my time and saw service with 42 in Vanuatu (1980) and the Falklands (1982).

I left the Corps in 83 and joined the Met Police and was posted to Hackney, East London. After two years of that I thought not for me and attempted to rejoin, was sent to CTC for a fitness test however I failed the medical (Deaf left ear) so I was stuck in the job, ended up doing the next 27years in the police, after Hackney, did 4yrs on the TSG (Public Order) then into the Firearms section as an Specialist Firearms Officer and Instructor.

I joined the RMR shortly after my stab at rejoining (Being deaf not a problem for the reserves…) ended up doing many years with RMR London.

I’ve ran two of the Commando 999 speed marches, both hurt.

During my working life I’ve witnessed, been involved with and instigated quite a few traumatic incidents so with the experience gained hope to assist the Corps family.

I now work in the corporate security industry and live in Brentwood, Essex.

Lyn Gannon

Lyn Gannon

I joined the WRNS in July 1976 and completed 24 years service – 22 in the RN and 2 as a Careers Adviser based in Oxford and Guildford.

During my regular service I served mainly in the Portsmouth area, except for one draft to HMS DRAKE and 3 ½ years in FOSM Northwood.  I also served with the Royal Marines for over 3 years in DRORM Centurion, so understand their psyche!

I was invalided out of the service in April 2000 (back and knee injuries – awarded a War Pension) and began working for the Royal Naval Benevolent Trust (RNBT).  RNBT is a grant making charity for personnel who have served or are still serving as Warrant Officer and below, and their dependants, in the Royal Navy and Royal Marines.  So I still have contact with veterans.

I have also been a volunteer for nearly nine years with the South East Veterans Advisory and Pensions Committee, helping veterans get War Pensions and AFCS payments, and all types of resettlement issues,  amongst other things.

I feel I have a lot to offer veterans and am very pleased to have this opportunity.

Victoria Platt

Victoria Platt

I live in Hertfordshire and am treasurer of the local Welwyn Garden City RMA.

After an interesting career working in Europe & Middle east. I retrained as an accountant in my 40’s gaining my ACCA qualification in 2012 showing it’s never too late. I am currently working in the finance department of a large telecoms company.

In my spare time I am actively involved with the Pendine Landspeed racing club as motorsports are also a passion of mine.

Qualified as a Trim for veterans Practitioner in 2014 and now looking forward to putting this to good use. I have a great deal of experience which will help in offering support and guidance to veterans and their families.

Peter Locke

Peter Locke

I completed 22years in the Corp after which I did a further 15 years with the Director Naval Recruiting based in Brighton. After 37 years in uniform I was looking forward to retiring. However (there is always one of those hanging around) I felt I could help those who were struggling once they had left the services. So I volunteered as a caseworker for SSAFA and became the Divisional Secretary for Brighton. I left that organisation last year but I feel I can still help those who are having trouble coping with life.
