Collectively, these massive war fleets would come to be referred to as the Armada Imperialis. Under this form of organisation, each Imperial Cruiser would have a single Imperial Army regiment assigned to it. Imperial Army regimental commanding officers held command over both their regiment and the warship assigned to them, making a single warship a tactically flexible combined arms unit and minimizing the damage to the Imperium in the event of the loss of a starship, its crew and its assigned troops in the Warp.

During the Horus Heresy , however, it appeared that some Traitor Army regiments used the power of the starships at their disposal in order to forge interstellar empires for themselves in the fires of anarchy that swept the galaxy during the seven bloody standard years of the Heresy. This tendency to make use of the power of an Imperial starship combined with that of an Imperial Army regiment to establish tyrannies on many worlds led to the eventual split of the Imperial Army into the Imperial Guard and the Imperial Navy to deliberately foster a bureaucratic and inter-service rivalry between the two.

The Emperor of Mankind Himself issued a decree before his internment within the Golden Throne that starships could no longer be commanded by the officers of the newborn Imperial Guard but only by the members of their own service.

Military traditions dating back to ancient Roman times and earlier are responsible for the varying positions of commissioned and non-commissioned officers. It is said that non-commissioned officers (or NCO’s) are the backbone of the army even though commissioned officers rank higher and generally have a higher pay grade.

However, his tour was far from the norm as he headed the Group in both the Royal Engineers and the Royal Logistic Corps. This included responsibility for the operation of one ninth of Royal Mail — plus the added difficulty of severe industrial relations issues in a couple of his areas. Ken did not shy away from the task of taking the Group from the comfort and support of Mill Hill and its postal empathy to the unknown that was Grantham, and being part of a very large TA organisation.

At the same time he had to downsize the Group, from four to three Regiments and take manning from 75 officers and soldiers to 55 and around — and improve military skills! So the change of Corps and size were not exactly popular with anyone in the Group. He was always the centre of any fun, good times, good humour or prank. Yet, he never missed a morning parade and developed a strong desire to make the TA a place where soldiers learned, became better people and had such a good time that they wanted to come back for more the next year.

His tour as Commander consolidated such changes and spread the ethos throughout 1 PC Group. So, he retired from the TA in November having thoroughly enjoyed the experience and definitely giving more than he received. The MoD was indeed fortunate to have had the advice and guidance from this acknowledged expert in postal technology and mechanisation. He gave freely of his time and expertise to plan the changes needed to bring the Mill Hill Depot into the world of postal automation.

Ken was born in Wigan in November and had two hugely successful careers both which involved things of import to him — people and the post. People sought out and valued his company.
