Civic reception honour

February 22, 2017

Two employees of West Dunbartonshire Council were last night honoured with a Civic Reception hosted by Provost Douglas McAllister in Clydebank Town Hall. 

Danny Rainey was recognised for serving with the Army Cadet Force for over 50 years. The Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders ACF Staff Sergeant Instructor has been a cadet force adult volunteer for 46 years following four years as a cadet (joining in 1966!). HRFCA Deputy Chief Executive Andrew Macnaughton presented him with gifts.

Also honoured was WO1 (RSM) Jim Easton. Jim is the only Army Reservist RSM in Scotland and this achievement was recognised during a presentation and speech by Major Derek Sorley (second in Command of the Army Training Unit in Edinburgh – and Jim’s boss).

West Dunbartonshire Council was thanked for being a supportive employer to Danny and Jim.

Among those present at the event was Rear Admiral Mike Gregory who, as well as being the HRFCA President, is also the Lord-Lieutenant of Dunbartonshire.
