Sir John Gorman by John M. Gorman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Sir John Gorman has an incredible story to tell. He served with the Irish Guards in North West Europe, winning the MC for ramming and knocking-out a Royal Tiger tank; the thickness of its armour precluded any other alternative! After the War he followed his father into the Royal Ulster Constabulary - not the normal choice of career for a Roman Catholic. He was 'head-hunted' to join BOAC as head of Security. His duties was accompanying HM The Queen on Royal visits overseas. He rose to run the airline's operations in Canada before being invited to head the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, the largest landlord in Europe at a very sensitive time. A man of immense energy and charm, he progressed to becoming a Member and Deputy Speaker of the Northern Ireland Legislative Assembly, despite being 79. Like so many of his Countrymen, Sir John tells a tremendous story with disarming honesty and great good humour.
