CGS CoMmmendation
aj Sean Jones has had a remarkable career serving in the RAVC with distinction for
over 35 years through dedication, hard work, and exceptional performance over an extended period. On the 1st
of February 23, DATR enjoyed a visit from Director Land Warfare, Major General C Barry CBE. On this visit, Maj Jones was deservedly recognised for his contribution by being presented with a Chief of the General Staff Commendation.
Maj Jones has consistently shown a willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty both on Operations as well as in the UK and overseas, taking on challenging tasks and leading by example with distinction. More recently, he has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to
the RAVC both serving and retired in his role as RAVC Association Chair and has been an exemplar of Army and Corps values throughout his career.
Maj Jones’ dedication to the RAVC and whatever
team he has managed is truly inspiring. He is a shining example of the very best that the RAVC has to offer. His tireless work ethic and attention to detail have made him an indispensable asset to the RAVC and is thoroughly deserving of the Chief of the General Staff Commendation.
