Yesterday morning, His Excellency the Governor, Sir Adrian Johns awarded five Gibraltarians the prestigious Merchant Navy Medal. The Award provides an opportunity for the industry to recognise meritorious service by British Merchant Seafarers, who have made a worthwhile contribution to merchant shipping, its operations, development, personnel, welfare or safety, or who have performed an act of courage.
The ceremony has never been carried out in Gibraltar before. Captain J.J Ferro, former Captain of the Port was awarded the medal for services to the Port Welfare Committee and Mission to Seafarers, Gibraltar. Engineer of the slop barge 1707, E. Lara, which provided service during the 2011 port explosion, was awarded the medal for brave conduct in maneuvering the barge during the fire. Captain D Pincho received the medal for the same reason; as did deckhands T. Penalver and W. Penalver.
