When he left the Army in 2011 his dad said it was a hame he couldn’t go back in to auctioneering.

“I have been surprised by how well we have done, but one of the reasons I think we have done so well so quickly is the internet. Some auctioneers haven’t embraced the internet as much as we have. Everything we have up for auction goes on the internet and so we get bids from across the world.”
