Queen’s Birthday Honours for 151 Reservist

Cpl Lisa Ingram of 151 Regiment has received the Queen’s Volunteer Reserves Medal (QVRM) as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honour’s List, only the third Army OR4 ever to have done so.

She was one of only three Army recipients to be awarded the medal on this year’s board, with the other two recipients being Lt Cols.

“Being a member of the Reserves has given me the opportunity to really challenge myself as part of a team. To be recognised in this way is a fantastic honour, I was delighted when informed and excited at the thought receiving the award,” she says.

Lisa is a Marksman and one of the Army’s top shots having developed a keen interest in shooting which began in 2002. Soon after becoming top shot at the Regimental Skill at Arms competition, Lisa joined the Regimental shooting team.

Within her first year shooting she was within the top 50 Army Reservists competing at Bisley. She has been in the top 20 every year since. Lisa has won the RLC Corps Operational Shooting Competition on several occasions and continues to be part of the winning team.  Selected to represent the Army Reserve Operational Shooting Team, Lisa has also competed in numerous international competitions.

She is also a Section Corporal with 124 Transport Squadron based in Maidstone Kent.  When she is not shooting, Lisa commands a section of drivers operating LGV vehicles moving ammunition and commodities where ever the Army needs it. Her skills being operationally tested when deployed during Operation TELIC in Iraq.

Lisa’s Commanding Officer, Lt Colonel Dave Miller, said: “Lisa typifies the selfless commitment displayed by our Reservists and the contribution they make to defence. This award recognises the incredible achievements Lisa has made throughout her military career and is testament to the opportunities available to all.”

The Queen’s Volunteer Reserves Medal (QVRM) was created by Royal Warrant of Queen Elizabeth II on 29 Mar 1999. Only 13 Queen’s Volunteer Reserves Medals may be awarded in a year. The medal is presented only to members of the Volunteer Reserves of the British Armed Services for exemplary meritorious service in the conduct of their duties.
