If the spelling was correct, would have been a good pun.

Voted.

I am not an "Old Soldier" I am a Soldier of long ago.

I would be proud to wear the TRF (may it never die) as the more I read on here the more I see our Cap Badge fade away.

Colonel named Doctor of the Year


A doctor working for the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine has been named the Hospital Doctor of the Year.



Colonel Tim Hodgetts won the overall award at the Hospital Doctor Awards for his work at the Academic Department Military Emergency Medicine.

Based at the University of Birmingham, his team was also awarded the Training Team of the Year prize.

They do research for military medicine. Judges said their work helped raise the safety and survival of casualties.

Of Colonel Hodgetts, they said he should be congratulated for his 'par-excellence' training programme.

"It is benefiting thousands of soldiers in many war-torn areas and also civilians in the UK and countries that have faced natural disasters."


It is in the nature of these things that the headman gets a mention ( and journalists can get their brains arounds 'Colonel') but it should be stressed that this is a Tri-Service team.
Anyway, nice to see Service medical staff getting some well-deserved laurels...as old Mister Grace would have said:

" You've all done VERY WELL "

hip hip.......HUZZA!


Le Chevre

(and well done Pat! )
