My first visit to and contact with the Islands was in 1982 when I deployed with the Task Force as Commander of the Army’s Port Squadron. Following the cessation of hostilities I remained in Stanley until the October setting up the port operation for the ongoing support of the Garrison. In 1995 I returned for a posting with HQ BFFI with my family for a 15 month tour of duty (working for Peter Johnson as CBF!). I joined the FIA and Falklands Conservation, subsequently becoming a Trustee of the latter (2007 – 2011). I am a member of SAMA 82, was a Trustee from 2008 to 2014 and chairman of Trustees for the last 4 of those years.
