Former Cold War spy talks in Salisbury

Wednesday, 13 March @ 19:30 - 22:30

‘My Life as a Cold War Spy’ on Wednesday, March 13, at St. Francis’ Church, Salisbury promises to be a fascinating talk by Major General Peter Williams CMG OBE on his time as a military spy during the Cold War.

His career focused on military intelligence and liaison but spread across the spectrum from operational command to military diplomacy during and after the Cold War. During the Cold War he served in Berlin from 1973 to 1975 as a Regimental Intelligence Officer.

He spent more than four years in the 1980s in Berlin and East Germany as an officer in the British Commander’-in-Chief ‘s Mission to the Group of Soviet Forces in Germany, known as BRIXMIS, as a military spy. In 1983 he was awarded an MBE for his success as an intelligence collector and analyst.

Proceeds go towards Alabaré’s work with homeless and vulnerable veterans in Wiltshire. Alabaré has its headquarters and homes in Salisbury, assisting hundreds of ex-service personnel to re-establish themselves in civilian life.
