The story of Robin Horsfall
Robin Edward Horsfall was born Robin Edward Thane in 1957 to an English mother and father in Farnham, Surrey, UK. His birth father was a convicted criminal and he never met him during his childhood. Following a divorce and new marriage his step father adopted him and gave him the name Horsfall. Robin had five younger siblings three brothers and two sisters. He did well at school and passed his 11 plus to go to Farnham Grammar School in Surrey.
A broken family life adversely affected his education so he left school in 1972 at the age of fifteen and joined the army as a boy soldier. Despite a long period of isolation and bullying by his peers he became a full member of the Parachute Regiment in 1974 and served three tours of Northern Ireland. In 1978 he volunteered for SAS selection and passed on his second attempt in March 1979. He qualified as a Paramedic and Sniper. He was a member of the SAS counter terrorist team that assaulted the Iranian Embassy in London in 1980 rescuing nineteen hostages who had been held for six days.
