Lieutenant Commander Stephen DUDLEY MA Royal Navy
Stephen limited further acting to a purely amateur sphere, going on to join the Royal Navy, where the experiences of the complexity of making television and the lessons learned served him in good stead both as a Logistics Officer and a project manager, although perhaps a wistful spark remained in being twice part of the winning Ensemble in RN drama festivals in the early 1990’s playing McLeavy in Joe Orton’s Loot and Van Helsing in Dracula.
Lieutenant Commander Stephen DUDLEY, joined the Royal Navy in 1989 after reading History at Pembroke College, Cambridge. Initial training included a deployment to Hong Kong in HMS BRISTOL, and serving in HMS JUPITER in the Gulf during the invasion of Kuwait in 1990. Following specialist Logistics training at HMS RALEIGH he served on the Personnel and Administration staff of the Commander-in-Chief Naval Home Command in Portsmouth. In 1994 He served as Captain’s Secretary in HMS MANCHESTER, a guided missile Destroyer, a commission which included an 8 month deployment to the Far East. Following formal staff training at Greenwich, in 1996 he was appointed to London as Assistant Military Assistant to the Chief of Defence Intelligence.
After further logistic training, he served as Supply Officer, HMS YORK (a sister ship to HMS MANCHESTER) and then Supply Officer in the RN’s premier carrrier HMS ARK ROYAL, during her £140 M refit at Rosyth. 2000 saw him join the staff of the Second Sea Lord, first within the personnel directorate as lead officer for ratings’ promotion (and on women at sea and maternity issues), and latterly on the staff of the Flag Officer Training and Recruiting. Following a two year sabbatical in Industry, where he worked with Consultancy Firm W S Atkins, gaining project management qualifications, DUDLEY became Staff Support Officer at HMS EXCELLENT, a Shore Establishment in Portsmouth housing the Headquarters of the Commander-in-Chief, Fleet and a wide range of Naval training. The highlights of this appointment were supporting the celebration of the Centenary of the battle of Trafalgar and the International Fleet Review.
In 2006 DUDLEY joined the Directorate of Defence Logistics Information in Bath as a project manager and then served in Afghanistan in the Headquarters Joint Force Support as staff officer for Contracts before joining the Naval Staff in 2009. DUDLEY lives in Worcestershire with his wife Sue (a former WRNS officer) where they enjoy exploring the countryside on horseback and on foot.
