Hi guys, i bought a book about 6 months ago called the SAS Survial Guide by John 'Lofty' Wiseman, and i must say, it is an excellent book. It covers everything you can think of, like how to make rafts and shelters, to how to survive in every climate and continent. It is truly a guide you need if in trouble. I recommend this book to everyone. You never know when you need it.

Did John Wiseman actually serve in 'The Regiment' as 'they' are known? Or is this all secondhand collected stuff he has learned along the way with a few tips from those who actually served in the SAS?
John served with 22 SAS for 26 years (and, as he likes to point out, 55 days)! He saw active service worldwide, in every theatre of operations and special operations required of the British Army between 1959 and 1985. Amongst other things, John was Sergeant Major, B Squadron (Sabre Sqn) 22 SAS, Sergeant Major 22 SAS Training Wing, Head of Operational Research 22 SAS, set up the SP Team (Counter Hi-Jack), set up the SAS Counter-Terrorist Team (you know…those chaps who ended the Iranian Embassy siege) and trained the first members of the US Green Berets to return to the USA to form the famous Delta Force (US Special Forces).
