MR ALISTAIR GALLOWAY
Former British Army Officer
will talk on the subject of
Yemen: A Colourful and Challenging Place to be
Alistair Galloway was commissioned into the Life Guards in 2002. He served as an armoured formation reconnaissance troop leader on Operation Telic (Iraq). He was initially assigned to the Iraq-Kuwait border to ensure the safety & security of civilians and train & mentor Iraqi security forces & civilian teams. He subsequently secured Abu Al Falus Port on the Shatt Al Arab waterway and received a GOC’s commendation for service. Upon leaving the army in 2007, whilst working in the City, Alistair raised awareness regarding injured servicemen returning from Iraq and Afghanistan through meeting the Prime Minister and other MPs. He continues to remain up-to-date and well briefed on military and defence affairs and now owns and manages two security companies focused separately on the provision of Land and Maritime services in the Middle East, Africa and former Soviet Union. In this talk he will draw on his 13 year connection with the Yemen, looking at its history, updating on the recent challenging events and including some anecdotes alongside descriptions of the character and colour of this beautiful place.
