Two well known faces from Moffat have been recognised in the New Year Honours.
Bettina Dawson, who's 90, and 85-year-old Billy Duncan will both be awarded a British Empire Medal.
Bettina's being honoured for services to the catering industry in Dumfries and Galloway.
The grandmother has been working in the Moffat Chippy since 1936 and still puts in six shifts a week.
Over the years she has served soldiers, evacuees and even some celebrities, including the pop start Leo Sayer.
Bettina eats chips every day of her life. Asked how she felt about receiving her honour from the Queen, she replied;
"I'll take her a fish supper, how about that?"
Billy Duncan is being honoured for voluntary service to the Royal British Legion Scotland. He is the chairman of the Moffat Branch and recently led a campaign to stop the town's war memorial from being surrounded by parking spaces.
He told ITV Border:
"It's a great honour not just for myself but for all the members of the Legion down here. They are a great bunch of people. I think this is something I I will cherish for the rest of my life."
