Gallipoli Memorial Lecture – Strait is the Gate and Narrow is the Way

calendarclock - (GMT)

Lieutenant General Sir Robert Fulton KBE RMThis year’s Gallipoli Memorial Lecture will draw on selective aspects of the Gallipoli Campaign to identify comparisons with operations elsewhere and to isolate some recurring issues.  As Governor and Commander-in-Chief of Gibraltar,  Lieutenant General Sir Robert Fulton will reflect on themes of relevance to UK and Allied security today.

Lieutenant General Sir Robert Fulton KBE RM has been Governor and Commander-in-Chief of Gibraltar since September 2006. After university, he joined the Royal Marines in 1972. During a distinguished career spanning more than 30 years, he has occupied a number of top positions within the force, including Commandant General Royal Marines from 1998 to 2001. In 2001 he moved to the Ministry of Defence and in June 2003 he was promoted to Lieutenant General on appointment as Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff (Equipment Capability). 

The Gallipoli Memorial Lecture was until 2001 held annually at Eltham Church in south-east London. Subsequently, the Gallipoli Memorial Lecture Trust requested that  RUSI  carry on the tradition of an annual lecture. Lectures have since been delivered on the great issues of present day defence and security.

An optional £10 sandwich lunch shall be available from 1215.
