Meet the Cornish being awarded by the Queen, as the Birthday Honours list is published.

Falmouth paramedic Allan Cottle has been given an MBE.

As well as his work for South West Ambulance Service Trust (SWAST), he has for the last 15 years voluntarily helped develop medical training for Royal Navy Search and Rescue crews.

His voluntary work has significantly bolstered the Culdrose crew's medical skills and ensured correct protocols have been understood and followed.

He was the first SWAST paramedic to become a qualified member of the SAR crew and he has been involved in numerous high profile rescues, saving countless lives.

He also provides 12 specially selected front line SWAST staff to SAR and is solely responsible for coordinating their robust training programme. This scheme is the only one of its kind in the country and it ensures patients are always afforded the very best medical care.

Allan told Pirate FM it is all a bit of a shock: "I think to myself "Crikey, what have I done here to deserve this?" and thinking back over the years I must have done some good. It's such a huge reward. I can't explain what it means to me. It's immense.

"I still think about it and think "Oh no, no, no." I still can't believe it's myself. Just being able to go up there and work with these guys, who are extremely brave people, has always been a reward for me. Let alone receiving this MBE."

Also being honoured with a BEM, Margaret Elliot. The 70 year old from Fowey is being recognised for her services to The Mission to Seamen Charity and to the community in Fowey.

79 year old Enid Gaved from Torpoint also gets the BEM for her fundraising work for Arthritis Research UK.
