The year has included supporting Operations in both Afghanistan and Libya as well as ongoing work in the Falkland Islands and other locations and these commitments, added to the significant challenges posed by the current economic environment has required our people to dig very deep. With the ongoing support of our families and of the Moray community, we have delivered what has been asked and some have gone well above and beyond and receive their reward today. My congratulations to the award winners and my heartfelt thanks to all personnel and their families at RAF Lossiemouth for their unstinting professionalism and stoicism throughout 2011.’
