In the Birthday Honours of 2018 Peter Angus was awarded the BEM for his services to the community, extending over 50 years. While those who receive an award might opt to have it presented at Buckingham Palace, Peter was persuaded that the best place was in the town of his birth, Dingwall, in the company of family, friends and the community.
