Robert Cook

A retired regular soldier, Bob Cook spent many years in the 2nd Division. His forty years in the Army included service in Cyprus, Germany and Northern Ireland.

Born in 1948 in Wuppertal, Germany, Bob is part of a continuing family trend of family military service dating back almost without a break for over 160 years. After serving for 34 years in the Royal Signals, Bob retired to York in 1998 where he now owns a small Guest House.

Ignoring the age-old military adage of ‘never volunteer’, Bob volunteered take on the duties of Branch Secretary of the York Royal Signals Association, and became Chairman of the Fulford Branch of the Royal British Legion.

He was appointed Curator of the Kohima Museum in February 2008.

Bob was a member of General McDowall’s mission to Kohima in April 2009.
