On 16th January, in between the Annual General Meeting and the following Group event, Medical Group Chair Dr Afzal Ansary ASIS FRPS exercised the right due his office and presented the Chairman's Award to the Hon.Secretary, Bob Tapper ASIS FRPS.
The Chairman's Award is given entirely at the whim of the Group Chair, with no rules laid down as to its purpose and no advice or opinion sought from any other members. However, it is traditionally used to celebrate outstanding service to the Medical Group.
The award is a mounted Kinora, a 'flip card' motion picture device similar to a mutoscope, invented by the Lumiere Brothers and made in London prior to 1914.
For a report on the AGM and the talk that followed, look here.
