Award History

Major W.I.N.S. (Norm) Hicks-Hall was the inaugural Officer Commanding 106 Fd Wksp RAEME when it was established at Nui Dat, South Vietnam, in 1968.

Trish, Norm’s wife, gifted funds to establish “... an award as an incentive to a young tradesman of 106...” as this is what Norm would have wanted and it would be a lasting memorial to him. Provided a suitable candidate is identified, the Award will usually be presented each year as part of RAEME Birthday celebrations.
