Thomas Clyde's Bio

I have been relic/metal detecting for more than 15 years. I started off doing detecting underwater while scuba diving and added land and beach/shallow water detecting. I am a retired Paramedic/Firefighter (Retired since 2011) and enjoy the pleasure it brings to people when I'm able to locate their lost item. I won't videotape (for your privacy) and I don't post to any of the Social websites, Youtube, etc. But I may ask for a photo of you with the recovered item.
