Field Marshal Richard Frederick Vincent, Baron Vincent of Coleshill GBEKCBDSO (born 23 August 1931) is a retired British Army officer. After serving with British Army of the Rhine he served with the Commonwealth Brigade in Malaysia during the Indonesia–Malaysia confrontation. He commanded 12th Light Air Defence Regiment in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, for which he was awarded the Distinguished Service Order, and later commanded 19th Airportable Brigade. Although he never served as one of the individual service heads, he went on to be Vice-Chief of the Defence Staff in the late 1980s and then Chief of the Defence Staff in the aftermath of the Gulf War. He subsequently became Chair of the Military Committee of NATO in the mid-1990s.

Signed by :: General Sir Peter De La Billiere KCB,KBE,DSO,MC

General Sir Peter Edgar de la Cour de la Billière,[1] KCBKBEDSOMC & Bar MSC (born 29 April 1934) is a former British Army officer who was Director SAS during the Iranian Embassy Siege and Commander-in-Chief of the British forces in the 1990 Gulf War. He is often known by the acronym DLB.

Military career

He originally enlisted as a private in the King's Shropshire Light Infantry in 1952.[2] He was later commissioned as a Second Lieutenant into the Durham Light Infantry.[2] During his early career as an officer he served in Japan,Korea and Egypt.[2]

Special Air Service

In 1956, he attended and passed Selection for the Special Air Service. During his first SAS tour, he served in Malaya during the Malayan Emergency and Oman, where he was mentioned in despatches and won the Military Cross in 1959.[4][5] After his initial tour with 22 SAS, he returned to the Durham Light Infantry to run recruit training, before taking up the post of Adjutant of 21 SAS – the London based Territorial Army (reserve) SAS regiment.[2] In 1962, he was attached to the Federal Army in Aden.[2] In 1964, he failed Staff College but was appointed Officer Commanding A Squadron 22 SAS.[2] From 1964 to 1966, A Squadron was deployed to Borneo for the Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation.[2] For his actions during this period he was awarded a bar to the Military Cross.[6]

After this tour, he re-attended Staff College, and, this time, passed. After Staff College he was posted as G2 (intelligence) Special Forces at Strategic Command. He then served a tour as second-in-command of 22 SAS, of which he was Commanding Officer from 1972 to 1974.[2] For service in Oman, he was appointed a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order (DSO) in 1976.[7]

He then served in a number of administrative posts before returning to the regiment as Director SAS in 1979.[8] It was during this period that the SAS shot to public fame as a consequence of their storming of the Iranian Embassy in 1980. He was also responsible during the Falklands War for planning Operation Mikado.[9] In 1982, he was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE).[10]
