HONOURS FOR THE BEST OF BRITAIN
While writing Above and Beyond I had the great please of developing a friendship with Peter Bickmore. Peter received the British Empire Medal (Military Division) while serving on MTB 243 during World War 11. MTB 243 was a part of my father’s story and his journey to God, so I was pleased to included Peters tale within my book. Aged 94, Peter Bickmore has been awarded his second British Empire Medal (Civilian Division), this time for services to the commemoration of the Adriatic Campaign in World War 11.
Congratulations Peter Bickmore.
