Brigadier Chris Murray enlisted as a Trooper in the Royal Tank Regiment at Catterick in 1974 before completing a Potential Officers’ Course and subsequent selection for Sandhurst.  He was commissioned into the Royal Corps of Transport in 1975 and served all over the world.

He deployed on Gulf War 1 on Operation GRANBY with HQ 1st Armoured Division with particular responsibility for artillery ammunition logistics.  On promotion to Colonel in November 1998 he was appointed as Commander Royal Logistic Corps Territorial Army at Grantham. He was awarded the CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2002 for being a thoroughly nice bloke.
