We are delighted, and extremely grateful, to announce that Peter Cooper will be joining Soldier On! to manage our project administration.

Peter served, for 20 years, with the Royal Australian Air Force before working with the Civil Aviation Authority and other telecommunications employers. He joined us recently in South Yorkshire for our project at the site of the Medieval Priory and very quickly gained a reputation for being hard-working, diligent, supportive of others and for having a great sense of humour. He was an absolute pleasure to have spent two weeks with.

He said: “Now that I am retired, I am free to finally pursue my real interests. Finding Soldier On! enabled me to revive my interest in archaeology stopped by my incomplete archaeological degree and work commitments. My working background has made me fully aware of the need to maintain updated and accurate details for projects to succeed and I believe that I will be able to help Soldier On! continue to deliver their fantastic personal development and archaeological activities that I have seen do so much to help people who are less fortunate than myself”.

We are indebted to Peter and welcome him most warmly to the Soldier On! team.
