Lunch With The Chief of Defence Intelligence
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />The Chief of Defence Intelligence, Lieutenant General Andrew Ridgway will speak at a lunch to the Dubai Society, which is open to members of RUSI. General Ridgway is expected to give trenchant views on the recent performance of the intelligence communities and on the changes needed and underway. (His tour of duty at the Ministry of Defence started after the invasion of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Iraq.) The Butler report, now published, means that we are likely to have a stimulating and well-timed lunch.
The cost is £38 for wine beforehand, two courses, wine with the meal, coffee & petit fours. Timings are 12:30 for 1:00 with lunch ending about 2:15 p.m. The restaurant is in central London, well known to Dubai Society members. Its location will be made known to those from whom cheques are received. If you would like to attend, please click firstname.lastname@example.org and send an email with your name plus those of any guests. Please then post your cheque @ £38 per head made out to 'The Dubai Society' to The Events Secretary, The Dubai Society, PO Box 123, ALRESFORD, Hampshire, SO24 0ZF.
Places are likely to be taken up quickly and therefore an early response is advised. Please note that this lunch replaces the Society's usual 'last Tuesday of the month' informal bar lunch at Monte's.
