About Mervyn Finch

Mervyn Finch, MBE, was born in Wolverhampton, England, in 1951. He was one of fourteen siblings in a working-class family. Merv left school at the age of fifteen to find work as a trainee carpenter, before signing up in 1970 for service in the British Army. He spent twenty-two years as a telecommunications specialist in the Royal Corps of Signals. He served in units as diverse as Maritime, Armoured, Tactical Air Support, Special Forces, and with the only tactical electronic warfare regiment in the British Army. He attained the rank of Warrant Officer Class One, and was awarded the prestigious “Member of the British Empire” (MBE) medal by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1988.

On retirement in 1992, and after a short, if somewhat colourful career in Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM) with a security consultancy firm in the south of England, Merv worked for ten years as a technical trainer and training instructional designer with a well-known telecommunications equipment manufacturer.
