Each year the Lightmongers present Awards for Outstanding Achievement to individuals nominated by the Commanding Officers of each of our three military affiliations. We usually present these at the Lightmongers Livery Dinner held in one of the prestigious Livery Halls in the City of London. This year however, because of COVID-19, the Livery Dinner was cancelled and alternative arrangements had to be made for the presentations to the winners of the 2020 awards, who were:
Army Award – Capt Tommy Flight of 579 Field Squadron
Award sponsored by Liveryman Bob Harris
RAF Award – L/Cpl Neal Poole of 606 (Chiltern) Squadron
Award sponsored by Past Master Rod Bennion
Royal Navy Award – Lieutenant Mike Hawkins
Award sponsored by Past Master John Harding.
The Army and RAF Awards were delivered to each of the units and the presentations were made locally by the Commanding Officers.
For the Royal Navy, whilst HMS Queen Elizabeth was in Portsmouth the Master and Clerk were invited aboard, under strict COVID-secure arrangements, to make the presentation:

Congratulations to all the 2020 Award winners and many thanks to the Sponsors of the Awards for their generous support.
