The Regimental Association of the Devonshire and Dorset Regiment

The President's Award

The President's Award

The idea of an award for those who have contributed significantly to the Regimental Association had been considered a number of times over the years, but never got off the ground.  Early in 2007 the Regimental Association Committee decided it was time to stop talking and take some action!

The outcome is The President’s Award in recognition of ‘long and distinguished service given to the Devonshire and Dorset Regimental Association’.  The award takes the form of a signed certificate and a unique lapel badge, which is normally presented by the President at the annual Regimental Reunion.

The Presidents Award

The 2016 President's Award winners are:

  • Mike Amor.
  • Bea Fitzgerald.
