I recently had the chance to take some training from Phil Singleton. He was one of the SAS assault element members from the Princess Gate rescue mission. Good course of instruction and a good time listening to the way things were back then on a variety of options.

On a side note, Phil is probably the most knowledgeable MP5 instructor around. I'm sure it's partly because of his SAS time and partly because he worked for H&K for several years teaching their weapons, but either way he has forgotten more about those guns than I'll ever know.
