I do agree @techiebloke there are thousands of men and women who do amazing things year in year out, in our communitys.
The only thing I would say is that the 'celebs' who are in the news being awarded MBE's Knighthoods etc, I personally feel that there must be more to what they do than we see as Joe public. I notice Twiggys was for her work with Charity's as well as fashion.
I just think that there's got to be more to these people than we see. Maybe I'm a gullible push over, I dunno.
My Uncle is an MBE, for services in the Military Police, my Nan used to get it muddled up and call it the MEB! (Midlands electricity board)
