The Key to Peace
Civil development in Dhofar was of huge importance - the key to peace - and has not received the publicity it merits. Martin Robb, the director of Civil Aid appointed by Sultan Qaboos in 1974 is just the man to tell us the story

About The Event
This important presentation for members of the AOS and SAF Association will take place at the AOS premises at 34 Sackville Street, off Piccadilly, at 6 pm on Wednesday 15 June.
For convenience, that’s the same day that the Association is holding its annual curry lunch at the Army and Navy Club. Sackville Street is a relatively short walk from the Army and Navy Club.
Those attending the talk will gather with light refreshments from 5 pm. The talk will start at 6 pm and end after a short question period at about 7 pm.
Martin Robb was commissioned into the Brigade of Gurkhas and saw service in the Far East. Following this he served in the Muscat Regiment of the Sultan’s Armed Forces. In 1974 he was appointed to head the Civil Aid and Development programme within the context of the Dhofar campaign.
He, and his wife Jenny, now live in Perthshire, Scotland, where they run a traditional hill farm.
Martin has spent time in the political world, has been chairman of a variety of charities and continues his Lay Ministry within the Episcopal Church of Scotland.
