A Service packed to over capacity with Middlesex Regimental brother officers and many other friends took place on 9th January to celebrate the life of Norman Clayden. Following a distinguished military career, the Ministry of Defence showed a rare glimpse of genius by appointing him as the very first MOD Conservation Officer.

Training areas, ranges and other military lands, here and overseas possess an amazing richness of fauna, flora and bird life that suddenly came under his sensitive environmental protection, and for which, on his retirement he was awarded a richly deserved MBE.
