New Year’s Honours
Shirley Adams-Leach, a dedicated music teacher, has received a MBE for her services to musical education in the Falkland Islands. She first arrived in the Islands in 1988 on a two-year part-time teaching placement. Returning full time in 1999, she has since instilled enthusiasm in music in a large number of Falklands students. The musical ability in the Falklands is borne out by the size of the GCSE class and consistently high results in Associated Board examinations. Also in the Queen’s New Year’s honours list was Brigadier Nicholas Roy Davies MBE MC. Formerly of the Parachute Regiment, Brigadier Davies has been appointed CBE in recognition of his long and distinguished service and particularly for his service in the Falkland Islands. Brigadier Davies was Commander of British Forces in the Falkland Islands (CBFSAI) for 18 months during the busy and sensitive period of the 25th anniversary of the 1982 conflict.
