UK contingent bids farewell to Major General Bill CB 2008


Solbiate Olona, 22 Apr 08. The 23-strong UK Contingent at the NATO Rapid Deployable Corps (Italy) gathered with their spouses to bid farewell to their Deputy Commander and Senior British Officer today.
Coinciding with the annual UK Ladies’ Dinner Night, the Contingent gathered at a country restaurant in Varese, not only to treat their spouses to a night of fine Italian food and wine, but also to say goodbye to three members of their community.
Major General Bill CB, who departs in preparation for his next appointment as a Lieutenant General and the UK Military representative to NATO and the EU in Brussels in two weeks, has been HQ NRDC-ITA’s Deputy Commander since August 2006.
The Contingent also said goodbye to his wife, Mrs Gabrielle Bill and thanked both for all their support, kindness, friendship and leadership over the last two years.
Also being dined out was Captain James Jennings, who will continue to serve as General Bill’s Aide de Camp in Brussels.
