On 12 May 2016, it was announced that Nugee would become the next Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff (People).Lady Nugee! What a shocker. I wonder how close she is to her esteemed brother-in-law, our very own Lt Gen Richard Nugee, the Chief of Defence People (whatever the fvck that is?).

"CDP sets the strategy for developing a capable and motivated military and civilian workforce. The role was given even greater responsibility in last year’s SDSR, which pledged to enable our Armed Forces to work more flexibly, help more personnel live in private accommodation and buy their own homes, and develop a new joiner offer which both attracts the right recruits and better meets their expectations".
