Thanks and it’s a good thing you are doing – the Guide explained things to me the psychiatrists failed to do, it made sense.

- Gulf War veteran

Thanks so much for the Guide. The Police, Psychiatric and Probation Services took no notice of my twenty-year service

- Special Forces highly decorated veteran

My congratulations on the Survival Guide. I think it is quite outstanding, and for my welfare and clinical staff a really helpful insight into many of the things that they encounter as they go about their work. I will commend this work to anyone who shows more than a passing concern in the issues that you raise.

- Commodore Toby Elliott, Chief Executive Ex-Services Mental Welfare Society (Combat Stress)

Thanks. For once there is light at the end of the tunnel, yours is an outstanding and worthy cause, well done

- Northern Ireland veteran

thank you Jimmy we are delighted to accept this book and add it to our library.

- Imperial War Museum

I don’t think I will ever be able to put into words what the Guide means to me: it has changed my life. From the moment I first read a few pages, to now, reading it in its entirety.

- Tracey, ex-psychiatric nurse and sufferer of PTSD

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

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.

- Malaya and Northern Ireland veteran
