JOHN HUTCHINS

After training as a photographer at Reading, I joined the Department of the Environment in the early eighties before transferring to the Royal Armaments Research and Development Establishment at Chertsey as a camera man in the weapons trials and development branch. In the 90’s I moved from the photographic department to a scientific posting dealing with threat weapon systems about the time of the first Gulf War. I left the Ministry in 2004 after 22 years service attaining the rank of higher scientific officer, attached to the weapons office of the Defence Intelligence Service in order to start my own business in antique and classic weapons. I opened Kings Shilling Antiques in April 2004 located at the historic NRA rifle range at Bisley where I am still based today. After brief appearances on TV as a ‘gun expert’ with Rik Mayall in ’Violent Nation’ and with Time Team’s Guy De La Bedoyere in ‘My Famous Family’. Subsequently I fell in with the Tommy Atkins Media crew and the rest is history!!!
