On receipt of the award Ian said
"I am extremely humbled and proud to receive such an accolade from JAG(UK) members.
Had I known, when I stepped off of the bus outside the depot in Leeds, to embark on my career in the electricity supply industry during the scorching summer of 1976, that I would spend the final 20% of my service years trying to revise a 52 page pink book I may well have got back on the bus post-haste. However I'm glad I didn't because I went on to enjoy a varied and challenging career that has provided me with many memorable moments.
In closing, I wish you and all of your JAG(UK) colleagues all the very best for the future."
