More Honours for our alumni
University of Adelaide alumni are always among the annual lists of official Australian Honours awarded to members of the community for their unique contributions in various fields.
The last issue of the Adelaidean contained a list of University of Adelaide alumni whose contributions to their field and their community were acknowledged in the 2007 Queen's Birthday Honours List.
After that issue went to print, we were notified of two Adelaide alumni who were not included on that list. They are:
Emeritus Professor Jillian I Roe AO (BA (Hons) 1963)
Awarded the Officer in the Order of Australia (AO) for service to the community through the promotion of Australian history as a researcher and author, through executive roles in professional organsations, particularly as Chair of the Editorial Board, Australian Dictionary of Biography, and to education.
Lieutenant Colonel Andrew L McLachlan CSC (LL B 1988, LL M (Gen St) 1993)
Awarded the Conspicuous Service Cross (CSC) for outstanding achievement as South Australian Panel Leader, Australian Army Legal Corps, in support of Australian Defence Force units in South Australia, in particular the 9th Brigade.
Congratulations to those members of the University of Adelaide alumni community on receiving their Queen's Birthday Honours.
Members of the public, or a community group, may nominate individuals for the Order of Australia and Australian Bravery Decorations. Meritorious Service Awards are based on nominations from a specific organisation. The Department of Defence also nominates individuals for a range of service decorations.
