We are highly honored to have Brigadier Graeme Fraser MBE ADC Royal Marines, Naval Regional Commander for Wales and Western England as our guest speaker. 


Born in Elgin, Morayshire, Brig Graeme ‘Jock’ Fraser commissioned into the Royal Marines in 1993 having graduated from Aberdeen University. On completion of Royal Marine Young Officer training he joined 45 Commando Royal Marines as a Troop Commander deploying on operations to Kuwait and Northern Ireland. During the following 16 years Brig Fraser held a number of Regimental, intelligence and specialist Landing Craft appointments including sub-unit command and as Second in Command of 40 Commando Royal Marines. During this period he deployed on operations to Kosovo, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan in addition to participating in military training exercises in a range of environments from arctic Norway, to the Caribbean, Brunei, West Africa and the USA. Brig Fraser attended the Advanced Command and Staff Course at Shrivenham in 2005/2006 concurrently gaining a Masters degree from Kings College London. Promoted to Lt Col in 2009, Brig Fraser joined the Commander Amphibious Task Group’s staff as SO1 Amphibious Warfare deploying immediately on a 6 month deployment to the Far East which included support to coalition counter piracy operations off the Somali coast. A short period at the Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre followed prior to an extended operational staff tour in the Middle East. On return to the UK Brig Fraser assumed command of Royal Marines Reserve Scotland in March 2012. His tenure coincided with the amalgamation of the Unit with Royal Marines Reserve Tyne, the relocation of the Unit HQ from Glasgow to Edinburgh and a period of significant infrastructure investment as part of the Future Reserves 2020 programme. This was followed by an intense 2 year period with the Joint Force Headquarters, the UK’s extremely high readiness HQ, engaged in the military response to a range of crises around the globe. For this work he was appointed MBE in December 2015. Returning once more to Scotland, Brig Fraser assumed command of 43 Commando Royal Marines in July 2015. A specialist operational unit within 3 Commando Brigade, 43 Commando provided 24/7 security to the UK’s strategic deterrent and a range of globally deployed maritime interdiction capabilities. Brig Fraser commenced his current role as Naval Regional Commander Wales and Western England in Sep 2017. Effectively the Naval Attaché for the region, his responsibilities include the coordination of Naval Service support to the civil authorities in time of crises; liaising with the civic community; coordinating arrangements for Royal Navy and foreign warships visiting commercial ports; representing the Royal Navy at ceremonies and public events and supporting numerous Regular Navy, Royal Marines and Maritime Reserve units in the region. Married with four young children, Brig Fraser lives in East Devon. He enjoys family time in the countryside, cycling, scuba diving, winter sports and refereeing community rugby.
