Not for the Glory
Mick Fellows, MBE DSC BEM*
Mick Fellows is the most highly decorated Warrant Officer in the British Military.
As an elite Royal Navy Clearance Diver, he is an expert in the disposal of unexploded munitions on land and sea.
He conducted his first bomb disposal operation on HMS Antrim whilst under intense enemy aircraft fire during the Falklands campaign in 1982. His remarkable achievements led Mrs Thatcher to ask the Commander in Chief, “Who is this man and where did we find him?”
With humour and compassion he relates that episode and the many other exciting operations he has undertaken worldwide, including recovering the casualties of the Herald of Free Enterprise disaster.
After 35 years of naval service, in 1990 he formed his own company and and devoted the ensuing years to remediating the commercial humanitarian unexploded munitions discipline in the UK and worldwide.
