Jon Beausire, St John Ambulance & Rescue Service’s Chief Officer has received his Queen’s Ambulance Medal (QAM) at Buckingham Palace this week.

Jon travelled to London to pick up the honour and paid tribute to all the ambulance personnel he worked with locally and further afield.

“To be presented with the Queen’s Ambulance Medal has been an honour for me, especially to have received it from Her Majesty the Queen in person today, in her 90th year, at Buckingham Palace.  This was extra special and unexpected”, he said.








“I was delighted to have been nominated and to accept such an award which would not have been possible without all those ambulance personnel who I work with, day in, day out in our Island and throughout the British Isles.”

This national ambulance service award is in recognition of Jon’s roles in both the UK and
Guernsey and is bestowed on only 10 individuals by Her Majesty in any one year.

The QAM recognises individuals in the ambulance service across the British Isles for exceptional devotion to duty, including service marked by outstanding ability, merit and
exemplary conduct.
