The Army and Covid-19
August 11, 2021 3:00pm Online
Delivering support, maintaining defence, and planning evolution
There has been lots of media coverage of the Army’s support to the UK’s Covid-19 response. Behind the scenes, however, it has also managed the safety of its 112,000 soldiers and their barrack communities and maintained their training and deployment on overseas operations. It is also planning a major restructure to meet the defence requirements of the modern era. This is a unique opportunity to talk to Brigadier Ben M A Wrench, Commander 51st Infantry Brigade, Headquarters Scotland, and Joint Military Command Scotland, to gain insight into how the Army has learned to live with Covid-19 while delivering key outputs, supporting contingency, and planning its evolution.
Tea & Talk Series
The Tea & Talk series invites everyone to enjoy a cup of tea while engaging with experts in a friendly, relaxed discussion. There won’t be any PowerPoints, notes, or formality here – just the chance to ask questions and to listen to some of Scotland’s leading authorities on a variety of subjects.
All Tea & Talk events will take place using Zoom Meetings so attendees can take part using audio and video. To encourage discussion and allow for everyone an opportunity to ask questions we have limited the number of spaces available.
THIS EVENT IS ONLY OPEN TO ATTENDEES AGED 16+
