ROYAL FLUSH

ICE news

ICE president Douglas Oakervee presented Prince Philip with the ICE gold medal for 50 years membership and support for the ICE earlier this month.

The Duke of Edinburgh is a senior honorary fellow and was the founder president of the Council of Engineering Institutions, the forerunner of the Engineering Council. He also helped to launch the Fellowship of Engineering (now the Royal Academy of Engineering) and is closely involved with the Commonwealth Engineers Council. On presenting the medal to the Prince, Oakervee said, 'His Royal Highness' continued enthusiasm and energy in supporting and promoting science and engineering has done much to build the reputation of British and Commonwealth engineers throughout the world.'
