John served for a total of 26 years with the RAF and finished his Service as a Sergeant medic. He had an extremely varied career, serving in the Falklands and Northern Ireland 4 times and Germany twice.
Early in his career he had a bad accident whilst training and hurt his back. After suffering a heart attack in 2002, and formerly diagnosed with diabetes and arthritis soon after, John was finally discharged in 2005.
In 2011, John spotted an advert for a part-time medical trainer at the Wolverest Group. He applied straight away, and being an ex-Serviceman himself the two hit it off straight away.
He is really pleased to have this opportunity and will be supported by The Poppy Factory for the first 12 months.
