With the pending awards due how well will we as a service do. My guess is the usual sprinkling of OBE's & MBE's to the Col's & above, possibly 1 maybe 2 ARRC's to Capt's & above. And nil to nothing to the people on ground that do the work. Why is a relevant question - my own feelings are that our hierarchy are very poor in writing the relevant nominations or can't be bothered. This is bourn out by the Gulf honours, 1 ARRC & an OBE I believe. I don't believe its a god given right that we should be awarded these, but I can't believe that we as HCW arent worthy. I recently had this discussion with a senior Capt in Bos & her opinion was well Ive not been put up for anything so why should I bother. We will see tomorrow. Maybe I will be eating my words, but I doubt it.
