Captain Beard RN Presenting a Scale Model of
HMS Westminster to the Lord Mayor of Westminster
(Photograph Crown Copyright)

Hugh Beard joined the Royal Navy in 1987 as a Naval College Entrant and gained his initial sea experience in HM Ships BRISTOL, PETEREL and CORNWALL before volunteering for service in submarines.  The highlight of his first submarine assignment in HMS TIRELESS was surfacing at the North Pole on 8 May 1991.  Appointed as Navigating Officer first to HMS TRENCHANT and then to HMS VICTORIOUS provided a broad variety of operational experience, which included another ICEX, the first Spearfish torpedo firings and four SSBN deterrent patrols.  

 

Completing Submarine Command Course or 'Perisher' in 1999, he joined HMS VENGEANCE in Barrow-in-Furness as Second in Command and conducted a test firing of a Trident missile before undertaking further operational patrols.  Advanced Command and Staff Course at Shrivenham in 2002/03 was followed by a tour in PJHQ J3 as the UK TLAM Officer, responsible for UK Tomahawk operations and policy development.

 

Promoted to Commander in Jan 05, he joined HMS TRENCHANT as CO for a hugely enjoyable and rewarding 27 months in Command.  More operational patrols followed as well as participation in the International Fleet Review in July 2005 plus another missile firing, this time the first successful UK Block IV TLAM.  Two years in Navy Command as the Submarine Scheduler, and original architect of the RNs Medium Term Plan, preceded a fascinating 21 months in the Ministry of Defence in the Strategy Management (Programme) area.  As MOD Centre's lead programmer for Planning Round 10, the 2010 Comprehensive Spending Review, the Strategic Defence and Security Review and Planning Round 11, he had very privileged exposure to the politics and force level decisions behind Defence budget outcomes under both Labour and Coalition governments.  A short tour in FOST as Commander Submarine Sea Training preceded a return to Shrivenham for a stimulating 4 months on the Higher Command and Staff Course.

 

Selected for promotion to Captain in 2011, he joined HMS WESTMINSTER in Command in August 2012 and in his role as Captain Anti-Submarine Warfare.

 

He has a Masters Degree in Defence Studies from KCL and is a Younger Brother of Trinity House.

 

He and his wife Jenny live in Hampshire with their 3 rapidly growing children (18, 16, 12).  As well as spending as much time as possible with his family, Hugh enjoys reading, running and generally watching or participating in most sports, but particularly athletics, squash and, occasionally, golf.

Some 28 members and wives attended this years Christmas Social; enjoying fine food cooked and provided by Elaine, Keren and Anne, washed down of course by copious amounts of wine and beer.  The Raffle was the highlight of the evening, amassing £84 (double that of a normal social) which allowed us to surprise Tim (the Barman) with a Christmas bonus of £50, carrying the remainder through to next years events. 

Please see attached an assortment of the evenings proceedings in the form of candid phots; unfortunately I didn't get a phot of the real surprise of the evening which deserves a special mention; Micky Loins turned up out of the blue at approx 2200 having driven down from Epsom and was returning the same evening; great effort to come at say hello. 

Please pass this on to as many of the membership as you can via electronic methods; which will hopefully go some way to show there is a great deal of strength in the Association and its members.

May I take this opportunity to wish all our members and their families a very Happy 2011.

LS McColl was thoroughly prepared for POUWQ course.  Throughout the theory element of he showed an enthusiastic and meticulous approach achieving an average of over 90% in theory exams, and went on to achieve a very satisfactory practical element within the simulators.  During his sea training week LS McColl demonstrated professionalism on a daily basis and offered the Command team a good service throughout and managed to fire off at least 36 Stingray torpedoes in anger using the correct drills I may add.  All in all LS McColl achieved a very satisfactory and successful Qualifying course and has become a competent ASWD in a short period of time.

Another successful Quiz night at the monthly ASWI social evening in Pompy.  20 of the local senior members attended, dividing into 3 teams for the quiz; Betty Adams leading the Suffering Sixes, Tony Walton leading the Pharaohs and Elaine (she who must be obeyed) leading the Don't Knows. 

A closely contested evening with the lead changing many times, however, with cleaver use of their Joker in the 7 round (2nd picture board round) the Don't knows came from 3rd to be clear winner on the night. 

As you can see from the photos the winning team were presented with a bag a Maltesers with the runners up; the Suffering Sixes winning the wooden spoon. 

Due to refurbishment of the GI Club house in March the next meeting will now that place on Apr 22nd. Theme to be decided and announced at a later date.
