I Was at the presentation today, couldn't hang around and had to shoot off...
history of the Boulton Paul association from the back of the programme
about the award from the programme
front cover of the programme
programme of proceedings (taken from guess where?)
The two awards waiting to be presented
vice chairman Jack Holmes was first to be presented...
after a few words from Jack, it was chairman Cyril Plimmers turn to be presented with the award
the triumphant pair
official photo op with Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant of Staffordshire, Mr Ian Dudson CBE, who presented the award
the day didn't go without its hitches and it was meant to take place inside (more of that another time) but personally I think it was all the better for being in the fresh air
