In November 2021 The Sir Donald Gosling Sword of Honour was presented to Mark Slatter, Chairman of Olympian Homes, at The Royal Marines Charity ‘London Dinner 2021’. The sword is presented annually to the business that has provided the most significant support to RMA – The Royal Marines Charity over the previous 12 months. The Sir Donald Gosling Sword is a Royal Marines Officers’ Sword individually commissioned in 2014 to celebrate the 350th Anniversary of the Royal Marines. The dinner, now in its fifth year, was held in the Great Hall at London’s Guildhall with 450 people in attendance.
Sir Donald Gosling was a tremendous supporter of RMA and other Naval Service charities. It is the wish of his family that his name, legacy and association with RMA continues through the annual presentation of The Sir Donald Gosling Sword of Honour.
