Each year the UK Garrison awards a member who they feel has gone above and beyond the call of duty for the sake of charity or the welfare of the Garrison. The 2018 'Trooper of the Year' was awarded to Ian Rickhuss.
Ian is a trained paramedic and looked after a lady at a troop on the IOW whilst waiting for the emergency services to arrive. He was also awarded 501st Legion Trooper of the Month.
The award was presented by the Garrison CO Gary Hails at the Birmingham Symphony Hall event to the complete surprise of Ian.
Congratulations Ian and well done trooper.
