AWARD OF THE REGIMENTAL ROSETTE- FRANK SMITH

Post by FERDY » Sat Feb 09, 2019 11:40 am

May I be the First to Congratulate Frank Smith ' The Oracle ' on his award of the Regimental Rosette, for all he does for Noah's ARC, and the Regiment in general.

Citation from Col Tony Singer OBE Chairman KRH Regimental Association.

Dear Frank,
I write to inform you that the Colonel of the Regiment, General Sir Adrian Bradshaw KCB OBE, has agreed to you being awarded the The King’s Royal Hussars’ Regimental Rosette for your lasting strong support to Noah’s Arc as “The Oracle”, for organizing their social media, and as a conduit for HHQ and the Regiment. I am delighted for you, and offer you my warmest congratulations.

And from General Sir Adrian himself
Dear Frank,
May I congratulate you on the decision to award you the Regimental Rosette for your exceptional service to the Regimental family. I look forward to seeing you and very much hope to have the honour of awarding the Rosette to you in person.
Very best wishes
Adrian

I should like to add my personal congratulations to you Frank !

I have to admit that I have not noticed you doing anything or been aware of anything that you have done :shock:

But that is exactly how I remember you: confidently and competently beavering away in some quiet corner, ensuring that things will 'hold' when put under stress. Without solid foundations, which usually are 'unseen', nothing will stand the test of time, as Noahs Arc has, and so I do not doubt that you have earned this honour and I thank you for your part in providing this platform upon which so many of us enjoy performing and so many more enjoy silently observing.

Well done indeed Frank Smith !

Many congratulations Frank if was not for you and others I fear our family site would have drifted into obscurity. Without your cool calm energy and leadership things would be have been different and friendships lost for ever.
Thank you so much you Benghazi warrior .

I think you will find Frank runs several 14/20 sites on facebook (unfortunately you don't use) if you ever want too know anything that is printed and you find people talking about it I will gladly send you copies.
