Since November 2015, we have been proud to work in partnership with the Officers’ Association to support Officers’ transition into civilian roles.
As part of our commitment to the Officers’ Association, we were delighted to sponsor the dinner organised by the Presidents and Trustees of the Association at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, to commemorate the Glorious First of June.
This battle was the first great naval engagement of the French Revolutionary Wars. It was fought between the French and the British in the Atlantic, off the Breton island of Ouessant on 1st June 1794, and saw Admiral Richard Howe inflicting the worst losses the French Navy had suffered since 1692.
Andrew Fotherby, Director, WYG, was amongst the guests. He commented: “WYG has a long standing history of working with the Armed Forces. We are very proud to support the Officers’ Association, and provide Officers with the mentoring and career opportunities enabling them to make the most of their skills and experience as civilians.”
