With great pleasure I am writing as the Chairman of the Royal Marines Historical Society to congratulate and inform you that our Council has unanimously voted to award you our RMHS Historical Award for 2018. The award is in recognition of your outstanding work in creating the ‘G 10’ room in Landguard Fort, thus both promoting the history of the Corps and ensuring the Corps is also kept well and truly in the public’s eye.
The Royal Marines Historical Society Award was introduced in 2006 to recognise significant work by a non-member of the Society that promotes the history of the Royal Marines. There is no doubt that you have met our criteria in spades.
It is our custom that our President, Major General Julian Thompson, presents the RMHS and other Society awards at our Annual General Meeting which this year will be held at the Royal Marines Museum, Eastney on Saturday 27 October. Naturally, we do hope that you would be able to join us in person to receive your award but appreciate that geography may handicap such an arrangement and we may have to make alternative arrangements.
Meanwhile, once again please accept my congratulations.
Well done Rod, you thoroughly deserve this award. Am glad the corp is finally acknowledging all your hard work and effort. Hope you and Rose have a great night out, being waited on hand and foot and no clearing up to do afterwards, unless you volunteer.
