HB - I looked in two different newspapers earlier today and saw loads about gongs for celebrities but not a mention of anything for the Armed Forces. There was nothing in the Portsmouth News that I could see either. It made me think they had changed the process and would announce the military gongs later.

How disappointing is it to see that singers and entertainers who do little more than appear on screen and get idolised and well paid for it are so well covered in terms of space in the newspapers whilst the forces are more of less ignored.

Having seen the above list I count just over 20 gongs for the RN which also seems very poor in terms of numbers.

Yet another example of how well respected we are in general? I hope not.

Who on earth are V Adm Dymock and R Adm Latham - never heard of the buggers!
When I worked on Buccaneers at RAF Honington Cdr Dimmock as he was then was senior naval officer. He was always immaculate looking as if he had just stepped out of a Gieves catalogue. This was in1975. Not a bad SNO and when the crabs insisted that the RN went on parade he agreed, he stated however that as the senior service we would march off first to the tune Hearts of Oak. The group captain at the time a man by the name of Bairsto reluctantly agreed. :thumright:

No. The query was about the Order of the British Empire, not the Order of the Bath.

yes, t'is Jim - excellent news for him. I believe he is still looking outside. At that rank even if selected for 2* there has to be a vacant slot, otherwise he goes.

I was aboard the Hermes in 1970 when LtCdr Roger Dimmock was CO 801 Sqdn Buccaneers. I again met him in 1993 when he was the CEO of a Recruiting Agency based at North Harbour, Portsmouth. He retired as a Vice Admiral, and is now something to do with the FAA Officers Association.

The Officer referred to in the Honours list is not related, Vice Admiral Dymock.

Regards, Chris
