Major Noel Wright, a recent former Commanding Officer at Hadleigh Temple, has joined the International Staff Band. Although an accomplished trombonist, Major Noel is not playing with the band, nor is he conducting it. He has been appointed the band’s Executive Officer. He succeeds Colonel David Hinton who has recently taken up the position of Chief Secretary of the UKI territory.
After joking that people would have had a good laugh at his appointment, Major Noel said:
“It is a privilege and also a wonderful opportunity which I am looking forward to.” And one of the things to look forward to is a trip to Switzerland in 2012.
Major Noel is currently Assistant Territorial Evangelism Secretary at Territorial Headquarters.
