As the owner/founder of Delta 74 Private Investigations and a private investigator it is a job I love and so far is a very rewarding career choice for me. One thing I love about it is that it really can take you anywhere in the world at any moment. How I became a private investigator starts with my military career though.
Serving in the Royal Marines
I joined up at the ripe old age of 17! I passed all the pre-joining tests and set off on my merry way to Commando Training Centre Lympstone back in 2008 where I was about to do a whole lot of growing up. I passed the commando training course the easiest way possible in my opinion which is first time as an original in my recruit troop. It’s a pretty big deal..
I then served for 8 years in different units doing varying roles including electronic warfare, working with heavy weapons, guarding the nuclear capability and working within a commando fighting company at 42 Commando (pronounced as four two commando not forty-two) in Plymouth.
I loved my time within the Royal Marines but I knew it wasn’t forever. I wanted to start a life outside of the military and I knew I wanted to stick within my skill set. Now, I am not built like a bodyguard or good looking enough to get the top VIP close protection jobs (yes, those things do make a difference) so doing some research into new ventures I found surveillance and investigations work.
