I was really pleased to see Her Majesty The Queen give approval last week for a new Medal for Personnel from our Armed Forces.
To recognise all those who were involved in “Operation Pitting”, personnel from across the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force deployed to Kabul Afghanistan will receive the medal in recognition of their service under arduous and very difficult conditions during the evacuation effort.
This was a phenomenal achievement for UK Armed Forces and their civilian counterparts and it is good to see their work recognised in this way.
