Founder gets Merchant Navy Medal
In 2015, Her Majesty, The Queen graciously signed the Royal Warrant for the new State Award – the “Merchant Navy Medal for Meritorious Service.” This can only be presented to those who have served at sea, importantly still in any capacity, in the Merchant Navy or Fishing Fleets. The normal eligibility criteria are for a minimum of 20 years’ service, some of which must be afloat and any remainder within the industry. The number of awards granted annually remains at a maximum of 20.
