GIBRALTAR has appointed Lieutenant-General Edward Davis CB CBE as its new Governor.

The Royal Marine will succeed Sir James Dutton, who stepped down just two years into a three-year stint.

Lieutenant General Davis, 52, born in Heredfordshire, will take up his position in early 2016.

In the meantime, Alison MacMillan has assumed the role of acting Governor.

Lieutenant General Davis will be the third of the last four Governors of Gibraltar who have come from the Royal Marines.

He is currently the Deputy Commander of NATO’s Allied Land Command at Izmir, Turkey.

Chief Minister Fabian Picardo said: “I am delighted at the news of Lieutenant
General Davis’ appointment by Her Majesty as the next Governor and Commander in Chief of Gibraltar.

“Like many others I am proud of the long history that Gibraltar has enjoyed with the
Royal Marines.

“I have no doubt that the whole of Gibraltar will be very happy with this appointment and will join me in welcoming Lieutenant General Davis and his wife to the Rock in January.
