Posted on Monday 14 June 2021

Our congratulations to ARNO members who were recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours –

First Sea Lord Admiral Tony Radakin receives a Knighthood for his relentless drive and clear vision, shaping every aspect of the Royal Navy. His citation for his Knight Commander of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath (KCB) also relates to the major impact his innovations are having on the senior service.

Rear Admiral Andy Burns and Rear Admiral Phil Hally are both made Companions of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath (CB) for their work leading the Navy’s transformation agenda.

Surgeon Captain John Sharpley, who has driven several strategic programmes which have had a significant and positive impact within the mental health sphere, becomes Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

Commodore Annette Picton, a former ARNO/RNOC Trustee, has been awarded an MBE for her services to the Royal Navy. She said: ‘This will be an extremely proud moment. One would have to be made of stone not to be thrilled by it.’

Congratulations once again to everyone on the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
