Not just restricted to ab initio, those gaining additional ratings, differences training, qualifications and indeed licences are welcome to join the 2017 wall of fame. In 2016 we had 49 entries in a record breaking 21 categories

Nice ;^)
I think it could be nice to add anniversaries. Maybe not 5 or 10 years, but 25 and 50 are worth listing I'd have thought.

Or maybe it should be another thread on the main GA forum - some of the stalwarts may not come into the students forum often and we'll miss out on contributors and readers?

Wow! 5 years sounds like there may be a story behind which would merit a separate thread - well done Sir!

So far a cracking start to the year with 4 licences in January alone! Keep them coming!
