I have read the Guide from cover to cover, it’s so accurate and has had a profound effect, and it’s somewhat comforting.

- Gulf War veteran

Thanks, your Guide has opened my eyes to something even I dismissed before. I was so wrong and I realise now I’ve been suffering for years.

- Gulf War veteran

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

- US Special Forces 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.

A magnum opus

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

Thanks for the Guide. I needed this information

- Vietnam 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 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
