Trench Town ‘hero,’…Tremayne Brown To Receive Badge Of Honour today

Tremayne Brown, whose selfless effort saved a 12-year-old student from drowning in the raging flood waters of the Collie Smith Drive gully in Trench Town in September, will be honoured by the Government at King’s House today.

Brown is among seven Jamaicans who will receive the Badge of Honour for Gallantry.

His inclusion was confirmed when he attended dress rehearsals for individuals being honoured today, which were held at King’s House last week.

Brown was not included in the original list published by Governor General Sir Patrick Allen on August 6, in accordance with the regulations of the National Honours and Awards Act and on the advice of Prime Minister Andrew Holness.

He was, however, added on the recommendation of the prime minister, which was echoed in the House of Representatives by Minister of Culture, Gender Affairs, Entertainment, and Sport Olivia Grange, and accepted by the Members of Parliament

Six other individuals, who were originally listed, will also receive the Badge of Honour for Gallantry. They are: Howard Ainsworth Garcia, for rescuing “a man from the murky and treacherous waters of the Rio Cobre” on May 16; Anna Kay Annita Martin, for bravery in saving the lives of three younger siblings from a fire at their home (she escaped with minor burns to her ear and left arm); Davia Roman Tucker, for her courage in rescuing patients from a fire in the Intensive Care Unit of the Bustamante Hospital for Children on January 12; and Ramone Peart, Jamawno Riley and Jermaine Riley for risking their lives to save neighbours trapped by flood waters in Sunnyside, Linstead, St Catherine, in May.

Brown was added to the list on September 10, more than a month after the original list was released
