Martin’s Naval career sadly came to an end after a serious illness which saw him medically retired from the Royal Navy. This, however, afforded him the chance to learn how to trade and subsequently work from home after many years of absence due to his work. Martin is married with 2 grown up daughters. He is a keen sailor and is a member of a regular yacht racing crew and likes to surf when the sun is shining, consequently he lives in Devon near the beach and sea!
