British Empire Medal for Les Quilty


The MVS is delighted that the dedication of Les Quilty has been recognised with the award of the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours.

Les Quilty was one of our founding members and even signed the original copy of our articles.

While he could easily have stood aside and taken things easy, Les continues to work very hard for the MVS and in particular for the Eastbourne based East Sussex Sovereign Harbour unit.

His award of the British Empire Medal in the News Years Honours is such good news and all the trustees, officers and members of the MVS wish him well and thank him heartily for his hard work.
