Tue 1 Mar 2022: Director Ten Tors changes over

Colonel Neville Holmes MBE has handed over as the Army’s Commander South West and thus Director Ten Tors to Colonel Gary McDade.

Colonel Holmes has been promoted to Brigadier and is taking over as the Army’s head of cadets. We wish him the best of luck in his new post and look forward to seeing him again at this year’s Ten Tors in his new role.

Colonel McDade will be in post for three years and is looking forward to reinvigorating the Ten Tors Event after a two year gap due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Speaking about his new post he said “I am delighted and privileged to be taking on this appointment, which brings a life-changing experience to so many. It is truly inspirational to see the participants and their establishments, the amazing volunteers who selflessly give up their time to support the Ten Tors, and the military personnel from across Defence who enable this fantastic Event. I am very excited to finally be able to celebrate the 60th Ten Tors Event alongside the 70th Anniversary of the Dartmoor National Park, and wish all those training for this year’s event the best of luck.”
