We were delighted to partner with the Gurkha Musuem to bring you this Lockdown Lecture.
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’.
First shown on Tuesday 8th June. Watch the archived lecture and recorded Q&A to hear the full story of ‘Operation Hell Fire’ from Brigadier Bullock himself.
