Recovery Through Comedy
I was lucky enough to get a ticket for a special comedy show at this year’s Fringe, starring veterans from RBL's Recovery Through Comedy programme. The innovative five-day course teaches comedy techniques to improve self-confidence and wellbeing, and the participants I saw at the Poppy Factory last month had the audience in absolute stitches!

Scottish Region Royal Artillery Association
I was greatly honoured to speak at the Scottish Region Royal Artillery Association Summer Meeting in Edinburgh. I very much enjoyed meeting members and it was interesting to hear the Association's innovative plans for the future.
Marking one year in post
It’s hard to believe I’ve been in the SVC role for a whole year. I’ve had a really interesting year and am hugely grateful to all of the individuals and organisation who took time to chat with me. You can read more about my plans for the coming year in my news article about the milestone here, or catch up on some of my reflections and highlights in my blog post here.
Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
It was an enormous privilege to attend the Tattoo as part of the RAF Salute Takers Night. The outstanding performances showcased the very best of UK and international military musicians and it’s no surprise that people come from far and wide to enjoy this remarkable show. Congratulations to all involved with this incredible spectacle.
