Maritime Safety Systems Award
I would like to re post a Recognition of thanks to Mr Richard Woodford for the campaign which lead to the safety of small marine craft whether commercial or private vessels in fitting basic ERB or Similar radio distress systems as standard back in 1990`s who which was awarded A – MBE for his roll in the campaign to raise safety standards for vessels & crews within UK & Euro Waters

This was a major step forward in safety for both the fishing industry & private sector within UK waters also a major help both to coastguard & National Life boat (RNLI) personal we still believed to this day a lot is owed to the late Richard Woodford for his efforts as today we have a full safety network that is still based on his original ideas but sadly little has been done over the years to equip private vessels sector Although DSC systems are wildly now standard on VHF units, We still campaign is honour to be recognized within the maritime Industry as little is known of his original efforts back in the early 1990`s

This is to Honour the Late Mr Richard.E.Woodford of Leamington Spa, who sadly died before his Honour was received.
Although we can announce Mr Woodfords Honour was accredited to his Son by St James Palace
Mr Frank E Woodford MBE in 1994 for services to transport (Maritime Safety)
