Mark Meade, long-serving Chairman of the Workboat Association up to 2019 – has been awarded a Merchant Navy Medal for Meritorious Service.
The list has been published today (Merchant Navy Day) to honour those who “have served, or are serving, in the Merchant Navy or Fishing Fleets of the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, who have shown devotion to duty and exemplary service which has been of particular value and has constituted an outstanding example to others.”
Along with Mark Meade (listed as Captain J Meade), another person receiving the award you may be aware of is the long-serving Chairman of the International Jack-up Barge Operators Association (IJUBOA) John Howard, who has often sat beside us at many seminars, working groups and industry engagements.
The Workboat Association thank Mark for his long, tireless and continued work to make the Association what it is today. We wish Mark, John and all the other receivers of the MNM today a happy and appreciated Merchant Navy Day!
