Wendy Bell: ‘I have been keeping a secret for a good number of weeks, from everyone. Family included, as I was asked not to share and keep things strictly confidential.

Today (17th June 2017) in the Queens Honours list. Spencer has been awarded The Queens Commendation for Bravery.

This is very bittersweet, as I am, and always have been, immensely proud of him. But I would give up everything I have to see him walk through the door again.

I have to thank Neil who has worked so much for this and also our MP Oliver Dowden who supported Neil through the process.

Now I have to wait for when it will be presented. I will accept it for this act and the many others acts of bravery, when he risked his life, as a Police Officer for 31 years.

Thank you Darling for filling my life with Love, Happiness, Joy and laughter, for 41 years, I do it all for you.’

Steve Humphries (IOBA Vice Chairman) on his return from the reunion weekend (10/June/2017) and passed to me the absolutely beautifully engraved lantern which you had commissioned for me.

I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the Association in doing this and thank you all most sincerely for this kind gesture.

It was a wonderful privilege being the Chairman for 10 years I know you will feel the same for at least the next decade!

I missed you all greatly this weekend, Anita will tell you I was like a lost soul recounting by the hour what you would be doing at each stage of the weekend.

I hear it was a great success, very well done to you all.
