Hugh Dolan is a Squadron Leader in the Australian Air Force, a life that he enjoys and recommends to others. He is currently researching the air battles over Gallipoli at the Australian Defence Force Academy.
He has worked in minor headquarters roles in Australia and overseas. His military career started 15 years ago with enlistment in the British Army as a private. He served in Bosnia as a junior NCO and witnessed the importance of military intelligence in operation planning.
