This talk will look at the current British Army deployment to South Sudan and draw out some of the lessons learned operating in a remote and austere environment.
Both our speakers were involved in the early entry phase and were responsible for planning the two UK camps to accommodate the UK task force as well as designing a new UN hospital and jetty for off-loading barges on the Nile.
Clearly this is not the first time that the Royal Engineers have been involved in South Sudan, and the lecture will also reflect on how expeditionary infrastructure has changed in the last 100 years.
Please note: Photo ID (Passport or Driving Licence) will be required for entry into the Barracks.

Major Rob Duke commanded the Royal Engineer design team in South Sudan and is based in Nottingham with 62 Works Group, Royal Engineers.
Captain Pete Mackintosh was lead designer for much of the team's work in South Sudan including a steel pile jetty on the White Nile and a deployed surgical hospital. He also has wider experience in the region, having designed camps for the UK in Somalia.
