We held an evening meeting last week and our special guest was Barrie Buttenshaw

Barrie is the past President of The Rotary Club of Twickenham and travels to many Rotary clubs in the south.

He gave us a very entertaining and informative presentation with lots of laughs along the way.

As an Ammunition Technical Officer, a title that includes inspecting the Army’s ammunition, he was responsible for making safe all manner of explosives including devices left by organisations determined to inflict harm on the public. In Barry’s case most of these were the work of Welsh Nationalists and his work included keeping Prince Charles safe from postal packages.
