AN SAS commando who escaped from Iraq will give a talk on his military career.

The soldier – who operates under the pseudonym Chris Ryan – was part of the eight-man Bravo Two Zero mission during the Gulf War in 1991.

Three of his comrades were killed and four captured, but Mr Ryan escaped from Iraq.

He will give a talk at Cleckheaton Town Hall about his new book, Killing for the Company.

Mr Ryan was born near Newcastle in 1961 and joined the SAS in 1984 as a sniper and served for 10 years in the secretive commando group.

He lectures in business motivation and security, and is currently working as a bodyguard.

His first book, The One That Got Away, tells the story of the Bravo Two Zero mission.

Mr Ryan will talk at Cleckheaton Town Hall from 7.30pm on Monday, September 5.
