Martin’s career in Safety Equipment started off in the Royal Air Force in 1983 as a Safety Equipment Fitter. On being attached to the Parachute Regiment at Aldershot Martin served in several regions of the world servicing safety equipment.
Martin’s next posting was at the School of Combat, Survival and Rescue and Trials here at Plymouth at what was Royal Air Force Mountbatten, where he then became a Survival Instructor and trialled various new and weird safety equipment.
