Video: Bomb Disposal Expert Delivers Explosive Speech At Ashton Gate

Major Chris Hunter shares stories from 'the world's most dangerous job, in the world's most dangerous place' at the Big Sports Speaker event at Ashton Gate. 

 

By the time he arrived in Iraq in 2004, Hunter was one of the most experienced counter-terrorist bomb disposal specialists in the British Army.

In fourteen years, he’d seen active service in the Balkans, East Africa, Northern Ireland, Colombia, and Afghanistan, but Iraq was different.

Since retiring from the army, Chris Hunter has worked as a counter-terrorism consultant and a broadcaster and has also found time to become a best-selling author.
