The fourth of our speakers in the series on Life Purpose with former RAF Group Captain and RBKC Councillor Greg Hammond. The speakers illustrate that life purpose is not just for those who have a clear calling in their lives; everyone of us has a life purpose, and becoming consciously more aware of them brings meaning and greater fulfilment to our lives.

Greg Hammond’s teenage obsessions were military history, aircraft and politics. Joining the RAF at 18 as a ‘Cold War Warrior’, he later flew as an E-3D AWACS crew member including on operations around the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. He was promoted into a number of senior positions, including Station Commander of the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System at RAF Fylingdales and Deputy Commandant of the RAF College Cranwell. Politics remained a latent interest and Greg almost left the RAF to become an MP in the wake of the expenses scandal in Protected content . When he left the Service, it seemed natural to continue in public service and follow his political vocation, and he was elected to both the board of his local voluntary party association and to Kensington and Chelsea borough council representing Courtfield ward in South Kensington.
