Prof Howard Dalton FRS who was a Microbiology student at QEC in the mid 60s and also was our guest speaker in 2002, was awarded a KB (Knights Bachelor) in the New Year's Honours. He's Professor in Biological Sciences at Warwick University but has been on secondment as Scientific Adviser to DEFRA for several years now - indeed he spoke about some of his trials and tribulations there as our guest speaker at the 2003 Annual Reunion! There is also a short biog. of Prof Dalton here.
Ann Wood has written to him on behalf of herself and QECA with our congratulations.
