Latest Edition

In the November 2020 Edition of Desider Magazine, we speak to Major General Darren Crook Director Land Equipment about his top priority — safety.  We learn that HMS Spey, the fifth and final Offshore Patrol Vessel and one of the most environmentally-friendly vessels, has arrived in Portsmouth. We also hear about the first Army event that brought together military and industry en masse under COVID-19 restrictions: The latest iteration of the Army’s flagship Army Warfighting Experiment. Elsewhere, we hear from DE&S colleagues who have been recognised in the 2020 Queens Birthday Honours as well as the prestigious Women in Defence Awards. Check out some of our top stories below.
