General Sir Alfred Dudley Ward, GCB, KBE, DSO, DL (27 January 1905 – 28 December 1991) was a senior officer of the British Army who saw service during the Second World War and later became Governor of Gibraltar. He served as an ordinary soldier for three years before being sent for officer training in 1926. Slow peacetime career progression saw Ward achieving the rank of captain in only 1937 but the Second World War, which began in September 1939, allowed him to demonstrate his high ability as both a staff officer and commander in the field. Receiving command of the 4th Infantry Division at the unusually young age of 39 years and 3 months, Ward went on to hold staff and field appointments at the highest levels after the war.

Alfred Dudley Ward; 27 января 1905 — 28 декабря 1991 года) — генерал Британской армии, служивший во время Второй мировой войны, губернатором Гибралтара с 1962 по 1965 годы. Начинал службу рядовым солдатом, затем с 1926 года получил офицерское образование. В мирное время продвижение по службе шло медленно, и к 1937 году Уорд имел только звание капитана, но с началом Второй мировой войны он проявил себя способным офицером, как в штабоной работе, так и в качестве полевого командира. Получив командование 4-ю пехотную дивизию в необычно молодом возрасте 39 лет и 3 месяцев, Уорд продолжил успешную карьеру как в штабе, так и регулярных подразделениях. (ru)
