"We appreciate General Bradshaw’s visit as an important opportunity to have a frank discussion on our progress in implementing measures decided upon at the Wales summit,” said Vice Admiral Hudson. "We have taken significant steps over the past three months both toward full operational capability and toward our long-term planning for operations in the maritime, which blends seamlessly into the Allied Command Operations strategic picture.”

General Bradshaw assumed his current appointment as DSACEUR on 28 March 2014. The DSACEUR’s primary responsibility is to act as the deputy for the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), and he is heavily involved in the generation of forces for operational missions such as Resolute Support, and the coordination of interaction between NATO and the European Union. He has also been very involved with NATO Assurance Measures and implementing the Readiness Action Plan, including the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force. He is a former Deputy Commander of ISAF and a former Commander of UK Land Forces.
