Congratulations to all recipients.
Can someone please translate (for an ex simple sailor) what "Above water warfare tactical" equates to in old money. I know that AWW was the equivalent of GI the last time I met one in 2006, but the "tactical" bit?
I was still serving when Buntings became RO(T), as against the Sparkers RO(G), so is it something to do with the assimilation of the flagwaggers into the Seaman branch?
Just guessing - someone who knows will be along shortly to enlighten me - I hope.

BZ to all but Brian Hall stands out,he was my first WO when I joined bombers from diesel boats,had the privilege of teaching his son at cadets who is also a matelot now,Brian was interviewed on TV during the Parade at Windsor for QE2 the other weekend.
