Until Jon joined the regiment, Chris was involved in a bitter rivalry with Dave for king of the dicking around boys. His credits include a one and a half hour wait for a train to Versailles because he forgot it was a Sunday, a two hour bus trip to Drogheda in Ireland only to discover that the last tour of Newgrange would get back after the last bus had left and a long train journey to Berchtesgaden in Germany to visit the Eagle's Nest, which you could only get the bus to during the summer and we were there in the winter (though to be fair, this probably wasn't Chris' fault, the guide book had failed to mention this fact). He is, however, a man credited with some top organisation - Mission 1 1 Paris was a great success mainly thanks to Chris, and, together with Mike, David and Rupert, he organised Mission 3 3 Stockholm very well. His choice of destinations have been mixed.

Academic career

Chris's research utilises numerical models in conjunction with observations from Colonel's missions to investigate the fundamental processes controlling the maintenance and balancing of tabuli. Quantification of these processes is a key part of improving the equitability of present-day and future breaks. Chris is also interested in using statistical methods for quantifying and reducing balancing uncertainties.
