About Commander C W Fiander Royal Navy...

Commander Cliff Fiander joined the Royal Navy as an artificer apprentice at the age of 15 and during a career lasting 32 years, of which 20 were spent as an engineer in nuclear submarines, he carefully negotiated each rung of the promotion ladder until with some surprise to himself he reached the rank of Commander.  Presently he is the General Secretary of the Royal Naval Engineers’ Benevolent Society and retains a close relationship with the Royal Navy

After leaving the service he embarked on a second career and became a Director in a multi-national Facilities Management company.

Now retired from the world of work he lives in Wiltshire with his wife Lynne.
