Queens birthday honours

#1
Congratulations to the two QA's who picked up the ARRC in the Queens honours.

I'm not going soft for the QA's, in fact I was normally hard !! but credit to A A J, she deserved the award, I know what the award was given for.

Congrats to all, nice to see CB has some recognition for the years of service, no doubt she bleeds scarlet & grey!

A friend of mine was a WO1 in the Italian army. When he retired he was automatically made a 'Commendatore', which (if I have understood correctly) is their equivalent of a knight. All WOs and above apparently get this when they leave (I only have this by word of mouth). He chose not to use his title in civilian life, up to him, but I thought it was a much better gesture than our idea of being dined out in the Mess, period.
