Officer of The Order of British Empire (OBE)
This Order was formed in 1917 by King George V to reward service to the British Empire in the United Kingdom and abroad. Originally having only a Civil Division, a Military Division was added in 1918 to acknowledge distinguished military service of a non-combative nature. This is awarded for having a major local role in any activity, including people whose work has made them known nationally in their chosen area.
