PARROTT Andrew - Data Protection Policy.pdf

Born in London, he graduated from Aberdeen University before starting a career in the British Army.

As an officer in the Royal Corps of Transport and later the Royal Logistic Corps he spent much of his career abroad, serving with the Brigade of Gurkhas in Hong Kong, the British Army of the Rhine and the Belize Garrison.  He saw operational service in Northern Ireland and the Gulf.  In Scotland he served with the Territorial Army as Adjutant of the Lowland Transport Regiment in Glasgow and later as Commanding Officer of the Scottish Transport Regiment in Dunfermline.

From 1999 to 2003 he served at the Baltic Defence College in Estonia assisting with the training of officers for the armed forces of the newly independent Baltic States, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

In his final appointment in the Army he headed up the movements planning team within the armed forces staff responsible for global movements and logistics.

After 36 years service he retired from the Army in summer 2012 and, with his partner, took up full time residence in Perth, having owned a property in the city since 1999.

Since then he has become actively involved with local politics, having joined the SNP just prior to the 2011 Scottish Election.  He played an active part in the European Election and the Independence Referendum campaigns in 2014.  He has previously worked as a volunteer with the John Muir Trust and the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and now volunteers with the Perth and Kinross Credit Union.

His other interests include military history and railway history.
