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

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

I have tremendous respect for you, Jimmy – for your efforts and understanding of what we have survived as soldiers.

- US Special Forces veteran

A magnum opus

- Major General Dr R. Short, Director General British Army Medical Services 1996–1999

The Guide made me cry and I do have a lot of the problems that are in it. I was amazed at how the Guide is me and my ex-wife said the same. It is appreciated, thank you.

- Northern Ireland and Gulf War veteran

Jimmy, I got more out of this book, than I did from all my ten years of therapy

- Northern Ireland veteran

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

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)
