Merchant Navy Medal for CVO


The MVS would like to congratulate our Chief Volunteer Officer, Nick Spencer, who received his Merchant Navy medal for meritorious service from HRH Princess Anne at Trinity House in London on the 29th June.

The medal is awarded to those who are serving or have served in the Merchant Navy and fishing fleets of the UK, Isle of Man or Channel Islands for exemplary service and devotion to duty.

His career at sea included being a ferry master (much of the time on challenging Irish Sea routes), a ferry company superintendent and a Mostyn pilot.

Captain Spencer was accompanied by his daughter, Mrs Samantha Roberts.
