On Saturday 9th September Col Paul Edwards handed over as Chairman of the Army Mountaineering Association (AMA) to Lt Col Pete Skinsley. Col Edwards has served 5 years as Chairman and a further 22 years in other roles on the committee. He has been appointed as an Honorary Vice President by Lt Gen Ivan Hooper and will continue to serve in a minor role managing the AMA’s Memorial Fund.
Col Edwards would like to thank all of the committee for the unstinting support over the past 5 years and their companionship both on the hill and in committee over the past quarter of a century. ‘It has been a great privilege to serve the AMA and to offer opportunities for our members to go into the mountains’. He would also like to wish Lt Col Pete Skinsley the best of luck in taking on management of the AMA in its 60thanniversary year.
