    Major (temporary Lieutenant-Colonel) Richard Thomas Ringwood Macmanaway, Royal Army Service Corps, was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire.
    Major Macmanaway was employed at Headquarters, Anti-Aircraft Command, as Assistant Director of Supply and Transport from January, 1942, during which time he was called upon to perform extra duty in the absence of his immediate superior.

    His great experience and powers of organisation were major factors in the smooth running of Supply and Transport Services in Anti-Aircraft Command for two and a half years. By sheer will power he refused to allow ill health to interfere with duties which he at all times performed with high efficiency and the utmost tact.

    He comes from Monaghan.
