Joshua Cole wins Second Place in Society of Army Historical Research Essay Competition

9 May 17

Congratulations to Joshua Cole on his outstanding essay entitled, ‘To what extent can Sir Redvers Buller be considered a poor officer?’ Submitted to the Society of Army Historical Research’s essay competition 2017, it saw off essays from enough sixth-formers and undergraduates to achieve second place. On 25 April 2017 Joshua was invited to attend the society’s AGM at the Royal United Services Institute in London. Here Joshua enjoyed a lecture delivered by Michael Locicero entitled  ‘A Moonlight Massacre: The Forgotten Last Act of the Third Battle of Ypres’ before receiving his prize of £100 and a year’s subscription to the society journal. The reception afterwards presented opportunities for canapés, wine and discussion with the likes of Major-General Truluck and the prize-giver Lieutenant-General Sir Barney White-Spunner, Deputy Director of Defence Policy at NATO, and previously commander of the Kabul Multinational Brigade in 2002 and later Chief of Joint Force Operations for the national contingent in the Middle East.
