A MAYFIELD man’s “exceptional” service has gained him the highest county honour in the Territorial Army.

Captain Tony Igoe was awarded the Lord Lieutenant’s Certificate of Merit by Vice-Lord Lieutenant Sir Robert Clerk at a special ceremony in Midlothian Council chambers.

Captain Igoe said: “I feel very proud.

“I had absolutely no idea I was getting it until I got a call saying it had to be arranged quickly as I’m off to Afghanistan as a Major.”
