Culdrose reservist receives New Year honour

A naval reservist based at RNAS Culdrose has been recognised in the 2017 New Year’s Honours List with a Queens Volunteer Reserve Medal.

Lieutenant Commander Alan Rogers will pick up the prestigious award for his devoted work on Unmanned Aerial Systems and their use in the Royal Navy. The medal is given in recognition for his hard work and dedication over the years.

He said: “It’s a great honour to be recognised in such a manner. I am really pleased, but my achievements wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts and support of the 700X team. I would like to say thank you to each and every one of them.”

The Queen’s Volunteer Reserves Medal was created by the Queen by Royal Warrant in 1999. Only 13 Queen’s Volunteer Reserves Medals may be awarded each year.
