Recommended Posts

From Hereford Times today:

 

Vowchurch Hall, Herefordshire presents a talk by General Sir Adrian Bradshaw entitled Stories From a Soldiering Life

VOWCHURCH Hall, Herefordshire presents a talk by General Sir Adrian Bradshaw KCB, OBE on Friday, February 16 entitled Stories from a soldiering life, plus defence and security in the post-Brexit era.

General Sir Adrian Bradshaw was Deputy Supreme Allied Commander NATO Europe from 2014 to 2017, responsible for commanding operations on behalf of the 28 member states and partner nations.

From 2010-11, he was Deputy Commander of NATO Forces in Afghanistan where he was responsible for an alliance of 50 countries including 140,000 coalition personnel and 350,000 Afghan National Security Forces.

From 2005-08 Adrian Bradshaw was Director of UK Special Forces where he designed and delivered a series of new task forces in an emerging theatre of operations. He gained governmental support at the highest levels in the UK Ministry of Defence for non-traditional innovative methods and concepts to achieve key strategic effects against high risks.

The doors will open at 6.30pm for a welcome drink and canapés followed by the talk at 7.15pm. Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to ask questions.

The bar will be open before and after the talk.

Advance tickets £10 from Jane Wheatley on 01981 550791 or by email: [email protected] or £12 on the door.

 

Regarding Brexit maybe he will be able to tell us if we are keeping our own armed forces or using the proposed EU army? If anyone is going from Hereford are they able to offer a lift?

A long long time ago I used to eat my primary school dinners in this hall.  The school was next door.  The dinner lady was a wonderful lady and a wonderful cook called Mrs Seaborne.  There you are a little bit of knowledge!
