January 2024 Update on health issues:
Sadly, I have had to decide to stop working as a result of a short-fuse terminal prognosis and this website will shut down soon. I am moving my work to an archive as time allows. Thanks to all who have contributed and supported my work since leaving the Royal Navy but more importantly who also share my strategic goals and hopes for a less unstable world with nuclear weapons and who will continue to make the case.
Mimir Consulting ltd, whose principal UK Director was Rear Admiral John Gower CB OBE, offered specialist policy advice and education in the following areas:
International Strategic Stability
Nuclear Deterrence, Arms Control and Disarmament
Countering WMD (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear) and Non proliferation
RAdm Gower was also involved in transatlantic efforts to reduce the risks of nuclear conflict through the Nuclear Cruise Control initiative to constrain, remove and ultimately ban nuclear armed cruise missiles.
By and large, RAdm Gower operated as a not-for-profit consultant.
