HarropCommander Ian Harrop
Nuclear Submarine Engineer Officer
A nuclear propulsion engineer in the Royal Navy and a graduate of the Nuclear Advanced Course, Ian has served on various nuclear submarines since he joined in 1983. For the past 10 years he has served as a staff officer involved with nuclear engineering training, submarine manning and dockyard engineering finance. As a previous head of the Marine Engineering School his responsibility for junior officer training required some pleasurable involvement in debating competitions. He has also enjoyed being a Big Bang and Young Engineers judge for the last 10 years. Ian keeps his engineering tinkering skills fresh by keeping his classic British motorcycles on the road.
