I had lunch with here moons back Just after the first Iraqi war , what a smashing gal. I asked how she got on with the ordinary toms rather than the generals and diplomats. There followed 20 minutes of brilliant stories !
She believed that the British Soldier is actually more politically aware than most other countries . Especially after she was told by a few of them that after sorting Iraqi out they should turn around and drive through Saudi !!
I fell in Love with her that day and I regret that I never got a photo of us together.

mind you .... you know its a hard pub when you see HER working the door .

Not at all, she's a grand lass. Certainly fought her corner in Bosnia and ours.

Kate Adie photo - James Mason photos at

and was on great form at the National Memorial Arboretum a couple of years back.

It is true, though, when she rolled up in the armoured BBC lanny (I forget the pet name for it), you knew something was about to kick off.


I met her a few years ago when she stood in at short notice to give a fundraising talk for SSAFA. Told us to 'Go away' when asked how much her travel costs were and paid her own hotel bill.
Highly amusing talk as well.
