Military Award of Honour Sgt. Matthew Hardacre RLC


2012 winner other sgt hardacre rlc s


Nominated by a member of Brigadier Deas staff, Lt Colonel Curnow RLC.

Sgt Hardacre has proved to be a pivotal member of the postal & courier services division outperforming expectations. He's award nomination is for recognition of professional effectiveness, commitment to training excellence and continuous improvement in course delivery for postal operations.

Sgt Hardacre discovered a number of working practices that required teaching so he developed and implemented better process through every Forces Post Office operating with PACER2. The system during its infancy was deemed by many PCS operators as a complicated system and with little or no working manuals. It had suffered numerous operational errors and increase malcontent. Since the production of the Aide Memoire these issues have been minimised drawing BFPO global recognition for this outstanding document which has proven to turn a complete novice into a competent user within only a few days. Sgt Hardacre designed and implemented this training programme within 6 weeks, requiring extended days and working weekends to ensure that it was delivered in good order.

Sgt Hardacre is therefore recommended for the National Courier Awards, Military Award of Honour in recognition of his professional effectiveness, commitment to training excellence and continuous improvement in delivery.
