During the Queen’s Birthday 2020 Honours List, the Governor-General announced Commander Richard Eric Brickacek DSM RAN Awarded Conspicuous Service Cross for outstanding achievement as Commanding Officer of the HMAS Gascoyne.

Commander Brickacek was attached to EOD in 2010 to clear IED’s with MTF-1 and from all of us at the 42 for 42, we send you our congratulations.

On the Queen’s Birthday 2020 Honours List, 24 Navy personnel have joined the long number of other servicemen and women who have been appointed to the Order of Australia or Conspicuous Service awards.

The Order of Australia recognises recipients for achievement or meritorious service, with particular reference to their community contribution to Australia globally or domestically.

Driven by nominations and recommendations from peers, appointments in the Military Division are recommended to the Governor-General by the Minister for Defence. Awards – including Distinguished Service Decorations and Conspicuous Service Decorations – are presented for outstanding achievements or service within the Defence Forces.
