This year the inaugural Dena Rogers MBE submarine family award was presented to WO1 David Bathgate. The award is to celebrate the member of our community who has made a significant contribution to the wellbeing of our family.

The award was sponsored by Karen Rogers and the Rogers family after they lost their beloved husband/father/grandfather Dean after his battle with cancer. Dean served in the RN Submarine service and left as a WO1 before joining RNRMC where he re-vamped the pay roll giving scheme many of us contribute into today.
All in all it was a great night where so many familiar faces met up once again.
