A member of the Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team has received an MBE for his services.
Julian Carradice was honoured at Buckingham Palace.
The investiture was held by the Princess Royal, and other recipients included The Right
Honourable The Lord Coe (services to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games), Sir Benedict Ainslie (services to Sailing), Katherine Grainger (services to Rowing) and David Weir (services to Athletics).
Mr Carradice said:
"It was a fantastic day. The Princess Royal was very interested in hearing about some of my experiences.
"She did not think I looked old enough to have been involved in mountain rescue for 34 years.
"It was humbling to be recognised at that this level by our Queen."
