John Fletcher was born in London in 1952. His childhood was spent in Buenos Aires, Argentina and on his return to the UK he was educated at Welbeck College and R.M.A. Sandhurst.


He was commissioned into the Royal Corps of Signals in 1972 and served worldwide, including three operational tours. John retired from the regular army in 1982.


He settled in London, working in private security, and joined the T.A. in the parachute squadron of 39 (City of London) Signal Regiment. John married in 1989 and relocated to Milton Keynes upon the birth of his daughter where he worked as a service and technical sales manager.
