WOFF Vicki Lousick was awarded the McCarthy Rowbottom Jones Memorial Award for her achievements in advancing the ADF aeromedical evacuation capability.
In her previous posting to 3AMES, WOFF Lousick was a lead contributor in the development of the C-27J Spartan aeromedical evacuation capability.
There was a personal note to being awarded the McCarthy Rowbottom Jones Memorial Award for WOFF Lousick.
“I didn’t know SQNLDR McCarthy, but I did know FLTLT Rowbottom and SGT Jones, and it’s a privilege to receive this award in their honour, having worked with them,” WOFF Lousick said.
“You don’t do your job expecting accolades, so it’s nice that it’s been acknowledged.”
The McCarthy Rowbottom Jones Memorial Award is named in honour of SQNLDR Paul McCarthy, FLTLT Lynne Rowbottom and SGT Wendy Jones, who were killed in the Sea King helicopter accident in Indonesia, on 2 Apr 05.
