He received his initial training at Bradbury Lines Barracks in Hereford and was on cadre at the NATO LRRP School in West Germany.
"To qualify for the SAS, a candidate trooper must complete the 'Long Drag' which is a forced march over 30 miles through marshes and rough, hilly terrain, carrying 50 pounds of equipment.

Big Ben completed his march in 12 hours, had a bit of supper, and volunteered to go back out and help search for candidates who got lost in the moors..."

The British Special Air Service (SAS) is roughly the equivalent of the American Special Forces. It maintains an equally tough standard for its recruits. SAS soldiers work in small units as a tightly-knit team. They go behind enemy lines by land, sea, or air for covert missions. Part of the Mobility Troop, BIG BEN has participated in many missions, the details of which remain classified. He's now on assignment with the G.I. Joe forces to lend his commando skills to the team. BIG BEN thinks the Americans have strange accents and even stranger ways of doing things, but he admires their iron-fisted courage. When he fought the COBRA ALLEY VIPERS in a covert operation, he showed them why it's never wise to be on the wrong side of an SAS solider.
"I'm here to teach the bad guys that the fight for freedom and justice knows no borders."
