Mackay was headboy of his school, captain of the football team and youngest ever competitor at the Highland Games. He was going for his degree in celtic mythology and PE when he suddenly dropped out, moved south and became quite odd for about three years. He was standing on Beachy Head pondering something deep when the utter pointlessness of his existence hit him right between the eyes - like a runaway freight train. "I think I'll join the Army" he said, and promptly did.

Took basic training at Aldershot, graduated jump school and desert training unit. Qualified Expert all NATO and Warsaw Pact small arms.

"Some of the others think that Footloose is out there, but all he's trying to do is find himself. He's the boy-next-door who got lost on the way to the fair and he's simply trying to go home any which way he can. Most people think they know themselves and where they're going - they're the dangerous ones!"
