Bristow winchman recognised by the Queen

November 9, 2015

Bristow winchman Duncan Tripp has been recognized as a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in recognition of his service to the Royal Air Force (RAF).

Tripp served as winchman paramedic based at RAF Lossiemouth with 202 Squadron for 18 years before transitioning to Bristow’s UK SAR base at Inverness in April 2015.

Tripp was selected for the prestigious title earlier this year when he was listed on the Queen’s annual birthday honors list and received the award at a ceremony in Buckingham Palace. The MBE is awarded for a significant achievement or outstanding service to the community or for local “hands-on” service which stands out as an example to other people.

“I am humbled and honoured to have received this award for things I enjoy doing and that others can benefit from,” said Tripp. “However, these awards are not possible without the support and patience of friends, family and colleagues.”

“Over many years, Duncan has tirelessly and unselfishly dedicated a large part of his life to the community as a Paramedic First Responder,” said Sean Proctor, Bristow’s Chief Crewman, Inverness SAR. “He is an established, and well respected instructor with British Association of Immediate Care Scotland (BASICS) Scotland. It doesn’t stop there: he also raises large amounts of funds for charities with various organized expeditions around the globe, particularly a Nepalese orphanage, and the Deaf Society here in the UK. I have known Duncan for several years, and I have never met a more professional individual.”
