Senior cavers may remember Mike Shawcross, pioneer British caver active in the late 1960s to mid 1970s in western Canada and Central America, and over the past thirty years a resident of Antigua, Guatemala. 

In early 2011 it was announced that Mike's long-time charitable work improving the lives of impoverished rural Guatemalans would be recognized with the awarding of the Order of the British Empire.  This June, Mike was formally presented with the OBE at a ceremony in Buckingham Palace.
