Why would they? Separate Corps until 1993?

Eeek! <nowah>
There was one name on there that I was sure was a stacker; I suspect he commissioned RAOC but was one of the first recipients of the RLC award
 
No probs.
A few years ago I attended a Senior Management course. We were a mixed bunch, smart chaps and chapesses.
I forget the context now, but I pulled that one out during a discussion.
The chaps laughed - a couple of them nervously as they scanned the skies for thunderbolts - and there was the expected sharp intake of breath from the distaff side.
Except for one: exceptionally intelligent, good looking, fit, and a Regional General Manager of a major tobacco company.
She looked thoughtful and said: ‘No, hang on. Tracks is right you know . We don’t prioritise - I’ve just realised I don’t. We get distracted. We don’t see the most important job through before starting on something else.
Tracks, many thanks. You’ve opened my eyes to a big failing.’
I had been expecting brickbats, and getting that response, from a woman, really made my day.
Did you pull after such smooth talking Tracks?

Could be (who do you mean?) - that list is put together in a very weird way. For example Adrian Taplin was a 2Lt when he received it in 1979 not a Major and we have two Reehals (which is possible - Pat and Patch, father and son but the dates are odd).

Agreed. Perhaps it’s listing the rank of the recipient at the time of compiling the list, not the rank at which they received the award. Ref the father and son, this is correct
