    Congratulations to all.

    Let the bitching begin...... :roll:
  3. Indeed, on both points!

    Yep, well done all.

    I'd have thought after nearly 30 years in the mob, I'd have known a few more of those on the list, particularly the "higher-ups", but apart from Ron Sinclair (top bloke) & Dicky Ibbotson (top bloke too), that's it.

    Admiral Ibbotson was my CO on Hurworth in '91- him being a "two'n'alf" me being a POMEM(M) - spin forward twenty years & one of us only got promoted once :oops:

    Yes, a wholehearted well done to all.
  6. First of all, hearty congratulations to everyone on the list.

    Secondly, belated apologies for having been the one to break the news to your CO that your long-awaited stand-off in Bahrain had to be curtailed after only a few hours owing to 'sudden developments'.

    Thirdly, particular congratulations to CPO(D) William 'Willie' Sharp on his appointment as an MBE. Among his other achievements, Willie was one of the members of Northern Diving Group (NDG) involved in the search for trapped survivors in the capsized oil rig support vessel Bourbon Dolphin in April 2007. He also performed EOD duties in Iraq in 2008.

    Finally, many congratulations to Charles Sydney Tobias MBE, founding Chairman of Pusser’s Rum, on his appointment as a CBE in the FCO list "for services to the Royal Navy and to the community of the British Virgin Islands".

    Hopefully my (not for me but someone else) nomination will win in the Birthday or next New Year list. Takes a while to go through but is not that difficult to write up.

    If you know someone who deserves a gong speak to the Capt Sec/DLO/other made up job title for a Loggie doing the Corros job without the extra work. Not bitter just better looking.

    They will help you staff it and then grown ups have a tinker. You will feel upset that the grown ups are interfering until you read the final submission and realise your inadequacies and agree that it is sooo much better using big words and less crayon.

    So think hard, is there someone in your team that deserves the recognition for work above the norm. There are CINCFLEET commendations, MSM, MBEs and others out there. Plus never loose sight of the Herbet Lott scheme.

    We old and bold cynics forget how recognition for your efforts is well received. Even the Part of Ship Officer saying thank you to the three ABs who dug out blind for rounds is well taken.
  8. Congrats to Stuart Furness OBE - top bloke - had the privilege of working with him in Bahrain - very much on top of his game

    What is that awarded for?

    I only ask because many moons ago I got it, it was a money award so I immidiately went ashore and p1ssed it against a wall incase they took it off me.

    Buggered if I know why I got it.
  10. Herbert Lott, now theres a name from the past
  11. Former Rawdon man honoured (From Wharfedale Observer)

  13. That's true, actually!
  14. My desk officer's in the list.

    Thoroughly deserved, too - he's not only a top bloke, he's also dangerously clever and works like Stakhanov.
