Defence Connect Podcast Network

Dec 6, 2018

In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by the deputy CEO and managing director maritime at Babcock Australia and New Zealand Bob Love, who will look back at his long and varied career in defence, and share his thoughts surrounding Australia as a shipbuilding hub. Love will discuss his involvement with Babcock, BMT and the Royal Navy, including his part in the major construction acquisition of aircraft carriers.  He will share how the UK relationship between services and industry differs to the Australian sector, and why he believes that the Australian defence industry has a unique advantage in comparison with other countries. Having received an Order of the British Empire from the Queen for his involvement in the recovery of HMS Nottingham off the coast of Australia, Love will discuss the story behind it and share his plans to turn the story into a book upon his retirement.
