Commanding Officers of the Brigade

When The Chief died, it was agreed that the brigade would be led by a Commanding Officer who would serve for a term of one year.

There have since been 38 COs, of varying ability and success, yet they are all honoured here.

The Commanding Officer

The present CO is Colin Issit.
