WO John Scarfe
POCK Tristan Jelley was awarded
the LSMT Bradley Meek Perpetual
Shield last month and credited a
posting to HMAS Sirius in 2009
for his growing passion for combat
The shield is awarded annual-
ly to the most outstanding combat
survivability instructor at the RAN
School of Survivability and Ships
"It's a great honour to receive
this award considering the ultimate
sacrifice that LSMT Meek made for
his country," POCK Jelley said.
LSMT Meek died during the
main machinery space fire on board
HMAS Westralia on May 5, 1998,
which claimed four lives.
Commander Australian Fleet
RADM Tim Barrett presented the
award to POCK Jelley in recogni-
tion of his outstanding performance
In early 2011, POCK Jelley post-
ed to RANSSSS at HMAS Stirling
as the chemical, biological, radio-
logical and nuclear defence instruc-
tor, where he passed on his knowl-
edge and passion to fellow sailors.
Training facility manager WO
John Scarfe praised POCK Jelley's
performance and dedication.
"This award is a most fitting rec-
ognition of POCK Jelley's outstand-
ing efforts," he said.
POCK Jelley said while it wasn't
the most glamorous of jobs, it was
one that needed doing.
"No one looks forward to doing
damage control exercises, but it is
necessary in the job that we do at
sea," he said.
"At the end of the day, once the
mission has been completed we all
want to return home safe.
"By learning and exercising
combat survivability, our odds of
returning home safe are greatly
