Note the change of venue. Now at
Boston & County Club.

I am pleased to be able to announce details of the 2016 OBA Annual Dinner. It will be held at the Boston & County Club, and the guest speaker this year will be Brigadier M W (Bill) Dunham CBE BSc.

You can order your dinner tickets on-line using the form at the bottom of this post.

Bill joined the Royal Marines in 1979 straight from BGS and had a long and varied career including command at every level up to Brigadier. His Career culminated in roles as Commandant of Commando Training Centre, as Chief of Staff of the NATO Training Mission in Kabul and finally Deputy Commandant General. He left the Corps on 31 March 2015 and now works as the Director of Strategy and Corporate Services at the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.

If you have never heard this man speak now is your chance – he was one of Mr Anderson’s early pupils and he knows he has a hard act to follow but we are sure he will give it a go!
