Dave Groce, Chairman of Soldiers League, awarded an MBE in birthday honours list.

“I’m chuffed to bits.” Dave Groce MBE

Soldiers League is very proud to announce that our Chairman has been awarded Membership of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2019 Queens Birthday Honours. We are publishing this on the old Pitchero website, as it is Dave who is developing the new website ( he is far too modest to include this detail himself.

2019 is Dave’s Annus Mirabilis, adding this award to his selection for promotion to Lt Col and a posting to Canberra. All three are absolutely deserved.

Having two SLC members on the same honours list is first for us and makes us really proud. See also
