It gives me great pleasure in writing, to inform you, on behalf of the Board of the Radio Society of Great Britain, that you have been awarded the 'Calcutta Key'.
The 'Calcutta Key' was donated to the Society by the 1950-51 President, W. A. Scarr G2WS and the first recipient in 1953 was Mr A. O. Milne G2MI. The key, a gift of the National Council is awarded for "Outstanding service to International Friendship through amateur radio".
The key, rather like the 'Ashes' never leaves these shores. It is presented at the Society's AGM and the recipient receives a framed photograph of the trophy, an inscribed wall plaque and a badge.
This years AGM is in Scotland and the Society will pay your overnight accomodation but not your fare!!! We would of course be delighted if you could attend but fully understand if you can't!
You are allowed to nominate somebody to receive the trophy on your behalf.
May I on closing add my own personal congratulations. I believe you to be a very worthy winner of the award for your outstanding contribution to the work of the IARU.
