Lieutenant-Colonel Nigel Wylde, QGM, army officer, IT expert. Born: 16 March 1947, Rawalpindi, India. Died: 21 March 2016, aged 69

ieutenant-Colonel Nigel Wylde was a former Cold War intelligence officer and weapons expert who, having served his country in Northern Ireland and on the front line of the Cold War gathering intelligence on Eastern Bloc forces, found himself charged with a breach of the Official Secrets Act for passing classified papers about surveillance operations in Northern Ireland to a journalist. After a distinguished career, Wylde retired from the Armyrats © military intelligence in 1991 and became an IT consultant while continuing to advise official bodies on acts of terrorism. Wylde came into conflict with the authorities following the publication of The Irish War in 1998, written by journalist Tony Geraghty; the book, which described the growing use of computers by Armyrats © military intelligence in identifying targets, also raised issues about the indiscriminate surveillance of the Ulster population and included information about the security structure in the province. Geraghty had already been a thorn in the side of the Northern Ireland authorities during the Troubles, but the book provoked the ire of the Ministry of Defence and inquiries into the journalist s activities followed. Wylde had been introduced to Geraghty by an army colleague and later Wylde agreed to help with the book. Shortly after publication, both men were arrested in dawn raids and charged under the Official Secrets Act for trafficking in classified information secrets about classified surveillance computers used by the British military.

Geraghty s book aroused official concern that intelligence-gathering methods would be compromised. However, the bugging of suspects houses, interception of telephone calls and e-mail, and concealed video cameras were already known to the IRA; only the monitoring of clothing by phoney dry-cleaning companies was perhaps a surprise. Two years of anguish ensued, with both men protesting their innocence. All charges against Geraghty were eventually dropped, but not against Wylde, who was a government employee by virtue of an MoD contract. It was alleged that in 1997 and 1998 Wylde had made damaging disclosures under Section 2 of the act; he was accused of passing five documents to Geraghty. But, when it emerged that the information was already in the public domain, the Crown Prosecution Service s case collapsed. Wylde declared that, though it was a victory for the freedom of speech, the Ministry of Defence Police knew, or should have known from the evidence in their possession in December 1998, that no offence under the Official Secrets Act had been committed.

Yet it has taken numerous letters to the Attorney General, Members of Parliament and many hundreds of thousands of pounds of taxpayers money for the prosecuting authorities to realise that they never had any evidence of wrongdoing. he said.

Born in Rawalpindi, India, in 1947 (now Pakistan following independence), NigelWylde was the son of Norman, a Royal Signals officer, and his wife, Mary (n e Higson). As a result, he was frequently moving with his father s postings. From the age of nine, he was educated at the Duke of York s Royal Armyrats © Military School, Dover, before progressing to the Royal Armyrats © Military Academy at Sandhurst, Surrey. Commissioned into the Royal Army Ordnance Corps in 1968, he trained rigorously to become an ammunition technical officer. He was posted to Northern Ireland in 1974 where he commanded the Belfast 321EOD unit and was responsible for defusing more than 90 IRA devices in three months, including a 350lb car bomb, for which he was awarded the Queen s Gallantry Medal. However, he raised concerns about possible army involvement in a murder in County Armagh and after objecting very strongly he was transferred back to England within a matter of days. After completing a series of courses at the Army Staff College, Wylde became an intelligence officer and secured a marquee appointment as the weapons and munitions expert with BRIXMIS, the British Army of the Rhine Commander-in-Chief s mission to the Commander of the Group of Soviet Forces in East Germany. Based in in Potsdam, East Germany, at the height of the Cold War, Wylde was responsible for spotting new and unusual Russian weapons and equipment and, if possible, photographing them, often putting himself in highly perilous situations.

One coup was the acquisition of a new air-filtration unit fitted to a bunker, which, upon being sent to London, was found to be proof against a chemical agent the Russians were testing. He also studied the communications used by Soviet divisions stationed in East Germany and their encoding systems. A breakthrough he achieved during an extensive Soviet exercise allowed their signals traffic to be read as if clear for several months until the encoding settings were changed. With his sharp and inquisitive mind, he enjoyed the cat and mouse game offered by his Stasi and KGB counterparts. After retiring, Wylde completed a postgraduate diploma in law and continued to provide expert opinion, some of which conflicted with official views, contradicting the findings of the Barron Report on the Dublin and Monaghan bombings before an Irish government subcommittee in 2004 and disputing the effectiveness of liquid explosives in the 2006 airline terror plot . He also worked in Citizens Advice, helping others to improve their lives. Wylde died from pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his German wife, Monika (Vogler), whom he married in 1970, and their daughter, Imina, and two grandchildren.

Sam's Flags: Royal Logistics Corps standards

Something I have been thinking about since my post on Armyrats © military colours[1] is the surprising lack of ceremonial colours in the British Army compared to other national armies. contrary to how it may appear not every regiment in the army carries colours. Only the Infantry and Cavalry regiments (with the exception of the honourable Artillery Company) units whose job is to close with and engage an enemy, but regiments of the other corps like the engineers, signalers, and logistics etc who support those units don’t usually have colours (although they all have camp flags).
I think this lack of flags stands out on parades and other ceremonial events. So I decided to have ago at designing colours for some of these units, starting with the largest corps in the army, the Royal Logistics Corps (RLC), who’s personnel specialise in a wide variety of support roles from chef to bomb disposal. A lot of RLC personnel are attached to or work within other units, but there are also logistics and support regiments within both the regular army and reserves which could carry colours.
The current regulations on colours and standards only cover infantry and cavalry which means I am pretty free for to make up anything for the RLC.
I decided the basic RLC standard should be a guidon, because ever since the corps origins in the Royal Waggon Train[2] it has a close relationship and similarities to cavalry. The RLC has five battle honours (the only corps to have battle honours) which have been won either when the Royal Waggon Train detached their horses from their waggons and charged like cavalry. Cavalry structure and terminology is also observed with the sub units of regiments and squadrons rather than companies or battalions.
The standard design is a blue swallow tailed guidon, with the corps badge (which is in itself a fascinating design[3]) in the centre. In the canton is a union device the centre of which bears the regiment number in roman numerals. The second and third quarters bear the royal cypher and the fourth quarter bears a local/regional or unit insignia unique within the corps to the regiment in question. The flag itself is fringed in gold and the tassels are gold and blue (the corps colours). This was partly inspired by the Irish Volunteers colours[4] mentioned in my history of Irish flags series[5]. The standards are:

Regular Army

1 Close Support Logistic Regiment

The rhino on a blue and gold shield (like the RLC arm patch[6]) is a heraldic version of the logo found on their page[7] of the army website.

3 Close Support Logistic Regiment

The Unit badge on the standard is based on the insignia of 1 Mechanized Brigade[8] which the regiment is part of.

4 Close Support Logistic Regiment

I don’t recognize the coat of arms but it appears on the regiment’s page[9] on the army website.

6 Regiment (Force Support)

The shield is based on the insignia on the regiment’s page[10] of the army website.

7 Regiment (Force Support)

The badge is on their webpage and reflects the regiments links to Poland, its predecessor having a Polish contingent in the Second World War, and although it now consists completely of British, Irish and Commonwealth citizens it maintains many of its Polish traditions.

9 Regiment (Force Support)

The coat of arms is a heraldic version of the logo on their page[11] of the army website.

10 Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment

The corps commitment to the Brigade of Gurkhas and the only RLC unit with its own unique cap badge (due to it being a Gurkha[12] regiment). Unlike the other standards the Gurkha cap badge is in the centre and the RLC badge in the fourth quarter.

11 Explosive Ordnance Disposal Regiment

The RLC (along with the corps of Royal Engineers) is responsible for bomb disposal, a job inherited from the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, who’s original job was maintaining ordnance but during WW2 and post war conflicts found itself mainly defusing them. I was tempted to use the regiment’s mascot Felix[13] who’s logo often appears on their vans. However I decided to use shield of the historic Board of Ordnance[14] which was used in the badge of the old Army Ordnance Corps and is still used in the RLC badge. Which given this units history is particularly appropriate.

13 Air Assault Support Regiment

A red field rather than a blue one for this regiment, this reflects the colour of their berets. In the British Army red berets denote Air Born troops which this regiment is. The badge depicts Bellerophon[15] on Pegasus from Ancient Greek mythology. A symbol used by UK air born forces that is recreated at the national paratrooper memorial[16].

17 Port & Maritime Regiment

As this regiment’s role is operating in ports and operating boats, ships and other vessels, I thought it appropriate that like the Royal Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary (and even the RAF) it’s standard be based on the ensign flown from Army/RLC vessels[17]. It keeps the number in the canton and RLC badge in the centre.

27 Theater Logistic (Force Support) Regiment

The wolf insignia comes from the logo on their page[18] of the army website.

29 Postal Courier & Movement Regiment

The Roman helmet and key is a symbol used by the unit.

Army Reserve

150 (Yorkshire) Transport Regiment (Volunteers)

The reservist standards follow the same pattern to the regular units, although as most reservist regiments are located in and recruit from a specific region, there is a greater emphasis on local/regional symbols as unit insignia. The example hear being the white rose of the House of York.

151 (London) Transport Regiment

The trident seems to be the Unit logo and appears on their page[19] of the army website

152 (North Irish) Regiment

I was initially thinking of putting the red hand of Ulster on the 152 standard, however I settled for the shamrock as it is used on the regiment’s logo[20].

154 (Scottish) Regiment

If Northern Ireland gets the shamrock, then of course Scotland has to have the thistle. The Royal cypher has changed to the Scottish variant, which drops the “II” (there was never an Elizabeth I of Scotland) and uses the Scottish crown[21].

156 (North West) Transport Regiment

The shield which seems to have elements of civic arms of NW England, is the unit coat of arms.

157 (Welsh) Regiment

The Welsh regiment insignia is of course the red dragon of Wales.

158 Transport Regiment

Crossed Halberds are used as the regiment’s logo. A common symbol of the execution of Armyrats © military duty.

159 Supply Regiment

The black and grey shield is based on the logo on the regiment’s insignia[22]. The regiment is based in the Midlands and the griffin is common in Midlands heraldry such as the West Midlands coat of arms[23].

162 (Movement Control) Regiment

The coat of arms of 162 regiment has a figure of robin hood as the regiment is from Nottingham.

165 Port & Maritime Regiment

I was going to use an ensign based standard like 17 Regiment, however as the regiment has some vehicle squadrons which have cavalry & yeomanry history like 142 (Queens Own Oxfordshire Hussars) Vehicle Squadron and 710 (Royal Buckinghamshire Hussars) Operational Hygiene Squadron so this is reflected in the guidon, with the regimental insignia being an anchor.

167 Catering Support Regiment

Commando Squadrons
