Ian Elgy receives an OBE

Ian was delighted to receive the award:


I am more thrilled than I ever would have thought to be honoured in this way. When I found out, I found myself surprisingly speechless; my wife thought I’d suddenly been struck down with a sudden illness. An OBE is beyond my expectations for my work. Nobody who works in the field of armour and protecting troops does so for awards or accolades, but it is fantastic to find that the work I have done is appreciated in this way.

Tim Bailey of Dstl’s Physical Protection Group congratulated Ian on his award:


Ian’s support to operations has undoubtedly saved lives as he came up with innovative solutions to emerging threats and worked with the armed forces to improve their training and safety. I am delighted he has been recognised with an OBE.

Richard Burlend receives an MBE

Speaking of his MBE, Richard Burlend said:


I am both delighted and honoured to have my contribution recognised in this way but any success has been achieved by working with some excellent colleagues. The work has been varied and diverse in nature, always a challenge but at the same time interesting and rewarding.

Dstl Group Leader David Southgate said Richard is a worthy recipient:


Richard, who has worked for the Ministry of Defence for more than 40 years, has been recognised for creating many bespoke engineering solutions using his practical mechanical and electrical engineering skills and knowledge of materials and explosives to support operational tasks.
