The Colonial Fire Brigade Long Service Medal, the Colonial Police Long Service Medal, the Colonial Prison Long Service Medal and the Colonial Special Constabulary Medal were the awards, which were given out at the ceremony. 

Mr. Manderson noted that the officers were being rewarded for “long service in their respective roles, for good character and for conduct considered to have been exemplary”. 

Other dignitaries present included Speaker of the House Mary Lawrence, Deputy Premier Juliana O’Connor-Conolly, Commissioner of Police David Baines and Prison Service Director Dwight Scott.

  1. I support the previous posters remarks regarding the identification of the awardees..I would much rather see them, than Larry, Moe and Curly..

  2. Some years ago I was traveling in the city of London with a senior banker when the list of the 10 wealthiest men in the UK was published and his comment was Its the ones who are not there that intrigue me! I think the same applies here Its the quiet ones we don’t know about who it would be interesting to know about, not the mileage seekers!
