TWO former Royal Marine Commandos have revealed the essential guide on how to best equip yourself in a terror attack.
Iraq War veterans Angus Weston and Pusser Trayner, who have both served in the British Army for 22 years, have written a book to advise civilians on how to be prepared for acts of terrorism.
Angus said: “Everywhere is now a potential target.
“If you think that you and your family are safe from terrorist attacks, then it’s time to switch on and start waking up to the threat known as the ‘new normal’.
“Nowhere is safe from the modern terrorists’ attack: shopping centres, sports events, music concerts, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and public transport are all ‘fair game’ to the terrorist of today.”
Trayner, who came face to face with an IRA terror suspect during a tour of Northern Ireland, and Weston, who came under sniper fire in Ulster and in mortar fire in Baghdad, stressed: “The threat from terrorists will only continue to increase – but a little specialist knowledge goes a long way.
“We have used our forty plus years of combined knowledge and experience in the commercial security industry to advise people how best to protect themselves and their families from the threat of terrorism.
“We hope to raise people’s situational awareness of normal day-to-day travel, as well as give advice in the event that people are caught up in a hostile situation at home or abroad.”
