Rick Stanton awarded an MBE

World renowned cave explorer Rick Stanton has been made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the Queen’s New Years’ honours list. Congratulations!

Agnes and Rick participated in the Australian-British collaborative project to reach the limits of the spectacular Cocklebiddy cave system in Australia.

He honored her later with words: "Agnes was well known and respected throughout the global diving community. She was not only great to be around on the surface, she was a very happy, enthusiastic, bubbly person. She was also up and coming in the Cave Diving World and we all thought she’d be one of the future bright stars". [Cave Explorer Rick Stanton, X-Ray International Dive Magazine].
