Trident whistleblower backed by former Royal Navy commander

Vanguard class SSBNRob Green, who flew nuclear -armed planes and helicopters for the navy in the 1960s and 1970s, praised McNeilly for being "courageous" and "patriotic" in helping to expose a "dangerous situation" which will get worse if Trident is replaced.

Green is famous for being the nephew of the anti-nuclear campaigner, Hilda Murrell, who was murdered in Shrewsbury in 1984. He is now a co-director of the Disarmament and Security Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand and campaigns against nuclear weapons.

He served in the Royal Navy from 1962-82, flying Buccaneer nuclear strike aircraft and anti-submarine helicopters equipped with nuclear depth bombs. On promotion to commander in 1978, he worked in the Ministry of Defence and was an intelligence officer during the Falklands War in 1982.
