Beasley named regiment’s second-in-command
The Royal Bermuda Regiment’s training officer was appointed as second-in-command of the island’s armed service yesterday.
Major Ben Beasley, a former Royal Air Force officer, takes over the role from Major Warren Furbert.
John Rankin, the Governor, promoted Major Beasley on the recommendation of the RBR’s promotions board.
Mr Rankin said: “During his career to date, he has served the regiment with distinction in a number of positions, including as adjutant and as training officer. I look forward to working with Major Beasley in his new role.”
Major Beasley, who joined the RBR in 2011, completed the UK Defence Academy’s advanced command and staff course last year.
He was awarded the British Empire Medal for services to Bermuda in the 2018 Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
Mr Rankin thanked Major Furbert for his work in his seven years as second-in-command.
He said: “He has given dedicated service to the regiment as a full-time member of staff since 1984 and will continue, for the time being, as the regiment’s paymaster.”
