Major Nigel Dunkley
Retired Defence Attache British Embassy Berlin
Nigel, a former Royal Scots Dragoon Guard, performed intelligence gathering duties in the former East Germany with BRIXMIS during the Cold War. He was awarded the MBE and Bronze Star Medal for his services with the US 1st Cavalry Division during Operation Desert Storm. He was Chief of Staff at the Royal Armoured Corp Centre at Bovington, ending his army career as Defence Attache at the British Embassy in Berlin. Living so much of his life in Berlin allows him to indulge in his interest in the Nazi era and World War Two in general and being fluent in German and Russian enables him to study campaigns from the ‘other side’ adding colour and an extra ‘insider’ aspect to his tours. Most recently he featured on the National Geographic Channel’s Battle of Berlin programme.
