Remembrance Event

Civil Service Club, 13-16 Great Scotland Yard, London, SW1A 2HJ
Join us for this special charity evening, and listen to inspirational speakers Jaco van Gass (ex Parachute Regiment, now World Champion Para-Cyclist) and Max Arthur (WW1 Historian). Since the end of World War 1, the battlefield has changed phenomenally in terms of technology, weaponry, equipment, support and understanding. The variety and complexity of the equipment and approaches used are amazing, but this has to be tempered by the same mental challenges and fears our soldiers have always been brave enough to face and the choices they have to make. At this event, we will hear a fascinating comparison of life in the trenches as described by award-winning historian Max Arthur with excerpts from his "Forgotten Voices of the Great War", which will be in direct juxtaposition to the picture painted by ex-paratrooper and world champion para-cyclist Jaco van Gass. Whether we are talking about the use of drones, a better understanding of PTSD, or vitally improved surgery and post-trauma care, our speakers will help us understand just how far-reaching these changes have been, and provide an enthralling comparison of 100 years of conflict.

Every year the Security Institute Chairman chooses a charity partner that the Institute supports. This year we are proud to support Send a Cow.

Send a Cow was set up by a group of Christian dairy farmers from the UK in 1988. Outraged at EU milk quotas, which were forcing them to slaughter healthy dairy cows, and in response to an appeal from Uganda for milk, they embarked on a project, which was set to become an innovative and practical charity. Uganda was just emerging from a long civil war, communities and their farmland had been destroyed and much of the country’s livestock wiped out. Several of the UK farmers flew to Africa to investigate how they could help.

In 2017 the charity Emerge Poverty Free merged with Send a Cow. Together they support even more families in Africa, empowering them to secure their own futures and helping them to lift themselves from poverty.
