Leadership & the Power to Inspire…

“For a soldier, leadership is that power to inspire soldiers in battle, or unforeseen crisis, where others fail; the quality possessed by the individual, of whatever rank, whose courage lifts lesser men with the certainty that all will go well as long as he is there.”

Lord Lovat (1911 to 1995)

Brigadier Simon Christopher Joseph Fraser, 15th Lord Lovat and 4th Baron Lovat, DSO, MC, TD, JP, DL was the 25th Chief of the Clan Fraser of Lovat and a prominent British Commando during the Second World War. His friends called him Shimi Lovat, an anglicised version of his name in the Scottish Gaelic language. His clan referred to him as MacShimidh, his Gaelic patronym, meaning Son of Simon.
