_8498297847In a Government House announcement/release last Saturday, it said, Mr. Cedric R. Osborne MBE has been awarded the OBE, and Mr. John Jeffers of St. Peters, MBE, honoured on the Queen’s birthday.

Mr. Osborne for his services to the Business community in Montserrat. He was initially awarded the MBE in 1983 and his new award recognizes his contributions in rebuilding the business sector in Montserrat post volcano.

Mr. John Jeffers of St. Peters, the Government’s retiring Fisheries Officer for his services to the environment especially as it relates to Turtle Watch for over 20 years, Mr. Jeffers has been at the forefront in the protection of the island’s turtle population contributing thousands of hours in protecting their nesting sites on the island’s beaches.

His Excellency Governor Adrian Davis along with the Hon. Deputy Premier Charles Kirnon acknowledged salutes during the annual Queen’s birthday  parade, honouring Queen Elizbeth II, held on Saturday June 15, supported by a fair turn out of residents who responded appreciatively of the marches by uniformed bodies in Montserrat.

A descriptively impressive parade, lead by members of the Royal Montserrat Defense Force, the Royal Montserrat Police Service and the Cadet Corps took part in the drills and formations to celebrate the occasion.

Governor Davis inspected the guard of honour who were supported by other uniformed bodies that took part in the parade. They are Fire Search and Rescue, Prison Services, Brownies, Girls guides, Boys Brigade and the Montserrat Red Cross under the First Aiders banner.

Governor Davis and Deputy Premier the honorable Charles Kirnon took the salutes during the parade. Kirnon deputised for the Premier the Hon. Ruben Meade who reportedly took part in observing the guards in London, while as guest of British Prime Minister the Hon. David Cameron.

Meade was in London along with other Overseas Territories on the invitation of the Prime Minister who addressed them on global tax evasion issues.

During the parade music was provided by members of the Police Service, Defense Force, Small Beginnings and other local musicians, under the direction of Cultural director Herman ‘Cupid’ Francis

Several members of the Police Service, Defense Force and Fire and Rescue Service received long service awards.

The Montserrat Reporter was uninformed of activities that took place immediately following the parade. An award ceremony was held for former RMDF commanding Officer and Ssuperintendent at Her Majesty’s Prison, Major Theodore T Bramble, at the residence of his Excellency the Governor Adrian Davis. Major Bramble was presented with the first overseas territories medal for long service.

ZJB radio was present and reported the Governor saying on the occasion, “I’m delighted to be able to take this opportunity to present a medal for distinguish and long service to Major Theodore T Bramble who is receiving the first overseas territories medal for long service.” Explaining: “As you know it used to be the colonial service medal. This is why it’s taken so long, it’s probably taken ten or twelve years to switch from Colonial medal to Overseas Territories medal.”

“Further,” he said to Bramble, “I’m going to add this medal to the fine collection you already have,” adding that the other medals will be given out on August 1, at Her Majesties Prison.
