We are delighted you are able to join us for our Bilton Lecture on Thursday 28th April 2016. In our third event of the Bilton Lecture series, we welcome General Sir Michael Rose KCB, CBE, DSO, QGM, to our School; he joins us to share his experience in the Army and SAS in a talk entitled 'War and Peace in the 21 Century'.
Sir Michael has extensive experience worldwide, particularly in the Middle East, as a Special Forces Officer. He has served in Germany, Aden, Malaysia, the Gulf States, Dhofar, as well as in Northern Ireland and the Falkland Islands.
Commanding Officer of the Regular and Reserve SAS Regiments from 1979 to 1982, Sir Michael was in control of the operation to free the hostages of the Iranian Embassy Siege in 1980. He also commanded Special Service operations in-theatre during the Falkland Conflict and became the first Director Special Forces.

From 1994 - 1995 he was Commander, United Nations Protection Force, Bosnia-Herzegovina; his service in this period was recognised on 5 May 1995 when he became a member of the Distinguished Service Order.

In 2006 Sir Michael came to public attention when he criticised British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and called for his impeachment for leading the country to war in Iraq under false pretences. This highlighted his unease about the legality and practicality, of the 2003 American-led invasion of Iraq. In 2007, he called for the admission of defeat and withdrawal of Coalition forces from Iraq describing the war as "hopeless" and comparing the situation to that faced by the British during the American Revolutionary War.

Drinks will be served in the Gallery from 7.00 - 7.25pm and the lecture will run from 7.30pm - 8.15pm in the Ravenscroft Theatre. As before, older pupils (4th Form and above) are also welcome to this event.
