Nigel Rogers spent most of his career, some thirty years, with Citi/Citibank, the US Global Bank Headquartered in New York. Nigel worked in various senior positions and was based in London, Zürich, Switzerland, and Edinburgh, and he travelled extensively with work throughout the world. Nigel retired and emigrated from the UK to Perth, Western Australia, following his marriage to Dr Heather Rogers in July 2012, after the loss of his first wife.
In retirement, one of Nigel’s main interests is in Naval and Military History. Nigel was elected President of the Naval Historical Society of Australia – WA Chapter, in September 2020, following the retirement of Dr George Carter (RAN Rtd).
Nigel is the `Resident Historian’ at Capital Community Radio in Perth: https://capitalcommunityradio.com/interviews.html and undertakes research to give Naval and Military History talks on the radio, as well as at meetings of various Societies and Institutions. Nigel is a Knight of Grace of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem Knights Hospitaller in the WA Priory, whose main objective is to raise funds for the homeless in Perth, WA.
Nigel’s father joined the British Diplomatic Service after the War in 1946, with a first posting to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where Nigel was born. Nigel then spent many years living in and visiting many countries in the world with his parents. Nigel’s interest in Naval History stems from inheriting his father’s collection of Naval History books and hearing his father’s stories about his Royal Navy Service throughout World War II, that included serving in the Atlantic, the Mediterranean and on the island of Malta during the Siege in World War II.
