No Mr Jones.

Jerome,I believe Boogsie and Ellie were awarded medals before.  

Thanks for,the info and correction Cecil,,,,respect

As a matter of fact all the Steelpan pioneers have at least one National Medal each of some kind and Boogsie has two Jerome. So they were all awarded and honoured before.

Who are you - state who you are ? if you are over 60 and you are a Trinidadian steelpan history would come to you - you write like you are guessing, always apologizing...
