“I’m not going to be selling boiled heads on a market stall,” says the anonymous leader of the South East England Preppers, a survivalist group that has meticulously planned for the coming apocalypse.

Since then he has brought fellow-travellers together through online groups and awaydays to share bushcraft techniques.
