Michael Curtis served in the Regular Army for 13 years from 1959-1972. Commissioned into the Royal Hampshire Regiment, he saw service in the West Indies, UK, Germany, Northern Ireland and Cyprus. Some of his service was also spent in the Middle East on secondment to the Trucial Oman Scouts. During this period he was initially second in command of ‘A’ Squadron, eventually commanding it for his last year. He still has many friends from this period, who regularly keep in touch.

After leaving the Army he built a successful career in the Middle East, based in Beirut, Amman, Dubai and Muscat, working first for the Boots Company and then for Spinneys. He returned to England in 1995 and lives near Winchester, busying himself in local affairs.  He is married with three grown up children.

He has written two books, A Pilgrimage of Remembrance and Arabian Days (co-authored with Col. Antony Cawston).
