14/4/19 League Meritorious Medal – Jim Nicholson

At the Annual General Meeting held on Sunday 14th April 2019, outgoing President Trevor Whitelaw presented to James (Jimmy) Nicholson the League Meritorious Medal, and certificate. This is the highest award attainable for a Service member in the RSL. Those awarded must already be a Sub-branch Life Member and a League Life Member. Our heartiest congratulations to Jimmy – over 40 years of service and dedication to the Brighton Sub-branch has been recognised by the presentation of the Medal.

Our only previous awardee was Ted Lambert, President in the late 1980’s. However, Ted’s main involvement of service to the League was at State Headquarters, and he only transferred to Brighton Sub-Branch in the latter stages of his RSL career. Thus Jimmy is rightfully the very first Brighton member to be rewarded for service to this Sub-Branch.

Congratulations again Jimmy. We are all proud of you.
