Admiral Lord West commanded the frigate HMS ARDENT during the Falkland Islands campaign in 1982 and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his part in the action before ARDENT was sunk. On promotion to Admiral, he served as Commander-in-Chief Fleet and later as First Sea Lord. He retired from the Royal Navy in 2006 and became Minister for National Security and Counter-terrorism in Gordon Brown’s government in 2007. He is now chairman of, or strategic adviser for a number of companies, Chancellor of Southampton Solent University and a trustee of the Imperial War Museum. He is a Privy Counsellor and is much sought after as a media commentator on defence and security issues.
