Bardot and Geoff Barker

studying and training constantly, he successfully
qualified for the elite British Royal Marines, beating

leave the corps he went on to became the youngest
person in England to take the advanced Diploma in
security management and personal protection.

personal trainer in his home town of Plymouth. He
then jumped on a ship, working his passage by scrubbing
decks and cleaning the engines until he reached Australia.

in Kings Cross in a Combi van for a year. Working
