Thank you so much for the Guide. I’ve read it about five times – it’s dead on. If I had known about it before my court case, I wouldn’t be here now.

- Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Falklands veteran

I felt your experiences as if my own, as I had a career as an Infantry Officer in the Punjab Regiment and fought a messy war in 1971 with India. I spent two years in captivity as a POW and your Guide has enormously helped me.

- Veteran captain, Pakistan Army

Thanks for the Guide, I think it’s great and the first time I read it I thought you had wrote about my life, I could see so much of me in it.

- Northern Ireland veteran

Watching one’s child suffering PTSD is a heartbreaking experience. It made me feel totally inadequate as a mother, as I could not take away the pain, fear, hurt, anger etc. of my child. I also believed this anger was directed at me personally and found it difficult to understand. The Survival Guide gave me, in words that I can understand, a greater knowledge of PTSD, showing me how to help myself deal with PTSD and therefore help and support my child.

- Mother of a sufferer of PTSD

Thank you for your Guide. I found it very accurate. I was adamant that I had escaped the conflicts unharmed but after reading your Guide I now know I was far from the truth. Again, thank you.

- Northern Ireland and Falklands veteran

The Guide is very informative, I related to it. Thanks for letting me open up. I find it helps knowing that someone else knows. It feels very scary reading the Guide and relating it to myself but you are a lifeline.

- Imperial War Museum
