QVSR Chief Executive Awarded Merchant Navy Medal

The Merchant Navy Medal is awarded annually to those eligible seafarers who have made a worthwhile contribution to merchant shipping. Only a limited number of medals are awarded to people who are not British Merchant Seafarers themselves.

Chief Executive, Alexander Campbell was awarded the medal in the latter category, for services to the care and welfare of retired merchant seafarers.

Alexander said he was very honoured to receive such a prestigious award; he felt humbled to be receiving a medal as a non seafarer, and that in many respects he was just doing what needed to be done in terms of modernising the ‘Queen Vic’ and providing retired seafarers with the best accommodation possible.
