THE HARD WAY
""Billy and our Patron Tracy Morris supporting his book launch and Phoenix Heroes""
The journey that Billy took from childhood to joining the Parachute Regiment and Special Air Service (SAS) coupled with his accomplishments after the military are covered within his new book "The Hard Way". A great read that lets you get to know Billy on a more personal basis.
Billy has done some amazing things during his military and SAS career, he has continued to do the same on leaving the forces and set up a non profit organisation named Rebuild Globally in Haiti with his wife Jules. This was born from the disaster of the 2010 Haiti earthquake and survived in its wake by embarking on a mission to provide a sustainable, entrepreneurial solution for survivors. The work that Billy and Jules have done here is truly amazing and life changing to many.
