The former Head of the Guard Force at the British High Commission (BHC) in Colombo Tuan Ismail was awarded an honorary MBE by Her Majesty The Queen in the Birthday Honours List of 2013. 
 
The British High Commission in Colombo said that his award was presented by The Prince of Wales at a personal and special ceremony during his visit to Sri Lanka this year. Among those present at the investiture ceremony were a number of important British dignitaries, including Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall, British Foreign Secretary William Hague and the British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, John Rankin, as well as Mr Ismail’s proud family and members of the BHC staff.
 
Ismail – as he is fondly known – started his career at the British High Commission in March 1983. In 1993 he was promoted to Senior Guard and Head of the Guard Force. He consistently showed exceptional commitment in his role in spite of any personal risks, especially during the long years of the Sri Lankan conflict, and his professionalism, resilience and dedication were unfaltering until his retirement in March 2013, it added.

    sri lanka is heaven in earth.

    Punny Pellow Thursday, 19 December 2013 03:03 AM

    Is that the reason why Sri Lankans are running away from the mother country! The first woman PM's grand children and the former President's children had their education and are employed in the UK and also married a guy from there!!!

    Lankan Thursday, 19 December 2013 02:22 AM

    Why you want him out of heven and into hell?

    He is better off in Sri Lanka than the cold, stressful UK. Other side is always green.

    Lima Wednesday, 18 December 2013 04:36 PM

    he is my close relation , i am very much proud of him , i have been closely associated like friends all times

    Be Fair Wednesday, 18 December 2013 04:30 PM

    Well done Sir, but this is my concern....
    "during the long years of the Sri Lankan conflict" I thought only the SL Army was at fault. This clearly highlights the double standards of the UK ..............

    Shamal Wednesday, 18 December 2013 03:56 PM

    Congrats sir

    Fair N Square Wednesday, 18 December 2013 02:26 PM

    In appreciation, offer him and his family visa's to move to UK, whom he has served with dedication... why not when UK offers bogus asylum to economic refugees. This man deserves just based on his dedication to the Brits and for a competent job done well...

    My hats off sir... you showed the world what commitment is..
