Mr Edward Jarron

Edward Jarron

Former Bursar

College position:

Before coming to Wolfson in January 2009 Mr Edward Jarron's main career had been in the Royal Air Force, first as a squadron pilot flying Vulcan aircraft in the nuclear deterrent role and later, in the mid-1970s as Assistant Air Attaché in Moscow.  From 1989 to 1990 he commanded RAF Cranwell, one of the RAF’s largest flying training stations, operating Jet Provost aircraft, before becoming the RAF’s Deputy Director of Flying Training. After spending two years in the Air Plans Nuclear post in the Ministry of Defence in the mid-1980s, Jarron became the Chief of Special Weapons at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) in 1992.

Nuclear deterrence was, therefore, Jarron's business for nearly thirty years, and the policies he helped develop then still have great relevance in today’s world.
