Whilst serving in the Royal Marines I qualified as an Electrical/Mechanical Engineer and on leaving the services I worked in the oil industry for a short while before deciding I would like a career closer to home in Leeds. This led me into self-employment and I decided to start up my own business as a Leeds locksmith.
Looking forward to the future I have set myself up as a local locksmith covering all the postcodes in Leeds. I am not a franchise, nor am I a national business and have no intentions to be. Should you need my services, it will be me answering the phone and carrying out the work. By operating this way I can keep running costs down and offer a competitive local rate while delivering a highly professional standard of work in a friendly manner.
Neil Byrne – Background
When I left school I visited Leeds military careers office and started my pre-selection training to gain a place at Lympstone Commando Training Centre to become a Royal Marines Commando.
By the age of 18 I had completed Royal Marines training, gained my Green Beret and passed for duty to my first unit, 40 Commando RM in Taunton, Somerset, from which base I completed various training exercise’s around the World including operational duties to Northern Ireland.
From 40 Commando RM I was posted to 45 Commando RM in Arbroath, Scotland. Again travelling extensively around the World including the colder climates of our planet due to 45 Commando RM being Britain’s cold weather warfare specialists. This led to more operational duties which included Northern Ireland and multiple tours of Afghanistan.
Neil Byrne – Yorkshireman!
On a lighter note, Yorkshire being Yorkshire, when I turn up at a property the first question is, “Neil would you like a cup of tea and how do you like it”? So I thought I would let you know now, its one sugar, with milk, and make sure you kill the teabag!
Thank you for taking time to read this.
