In my last post I mentioned that I'd passed the requirements for the FAI Silver Badge, and that I'd also completed two of the three requirements for the Gold Badge.  Well, it seems that I may have made a small miscalculation - the GFA, upon scrutinising my submitted flight trace, contacted me to advise that I had actually made a large enough climb to qualify for my Gold height gain, and thus I was awarded my Gold Badge as well as the Silver!!  As a bonus, I've also been awarded the first of my three Diamonds, for completing a declared task flight exceeding 300km.  More soon!
