Battlefield Trauma and the Path to Recovery
Major Steve King spent 17 years with the Royal Marines, specialising as a Mountain Leader, reconnaissance operator, RM sniper, survival specialist, military skiing instructor, helicopter abseil instructor and combat signaller. During his career he saw active service in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Primarily working in the field of reconnaissance, he discovered a passion for photography that still burns strong, although his equipment budget is now somewhat different.
He left the Royal Marines after suffering life-threatening injuries during his final operational tour in 2007 and what followed was an 18-month journey along an arduous recovery pathway.
He joined King’s College in 2008 as a CCF instructor in the Royal Marines Section and is now the officer in command of the Contingent and Housemaster of King Alfred.
