I cheated & 'googled' him Mel T :o:o:o
I found a link to a book written about him by Chris Ryan (Ex SAS)
The write up of the book is fascinating & I'm ashamed to say I've never heard of him until I read your post.
Here's a link to the book:

I'm ashamed to say that I had never heard of him either.

Is he still alive? Does he live back near Jarrow?

A legend he is. If there is a good photo of him I'll put him up there in the notable people section.

There's write up & an old photo of him on the Special Forces Roll of Honour website but I'm not sure if there's a copyright on it:
