MP supports city defence jobs

Have your say

TWO sailors have been presented with medals for their part in action off the coast of Libya last year.

Lieutenant Mike Rydiard, 25, and Leading Chef Mark Stokes-Lilley, 26, were both serving on board HMS Brocklesby when she was called into action as part of Nato Operation Unified Protector.

The pair now serve on HMS Chiddingfold.

They received the medals from Admiral Sir George Zambellas, Fleet Commander and Deputy Chief of Naval Staff, when he visited the Hunt-class vessel which is currently undergoing an upgrade in Portsmouth.
