Operation Hell Fire

Brigadier Christopher Bullock OBE MC takes us through a young officer’s tale of ‘Claret’ operations in the undeclared war between Britain and Indonesia in the mid 1960s. These clandestine operations launched deep into Indonesia were officially denied but, nevertheless wrested the initiative back from Indonesia and enabled Britain to successfully conclude what was euphemistically known as ‘confrontation’.  Join us for our first virtual event and hear the full story of ‘Operation Hell Fire’ from Brigadier Bullock himself.
