O.B.E - Robert Harry MORGAN - For services to Brass Band Music.
Congratulations Mr Morgan.
I think you will find that Robert has been awarded the MBE (not OBE).
Congatulations Robert on your M.B.E, totally deserved for all your hard work over the years, great to see a bandsmen honoured.
Here is a link to the news article.
There is also other recognition for his MBE online here, although it says that he plays the coronet!!
Nice one Rob!
What would you have to do to get a MBE for services to brass bands, is it just, playing for a long time and playing with lots of bands, or doing something special for the movement?
"Awarded for achievement or service in and to the community of a responsible kind which is outstanding in its field; or very local 'hands-on' service which stands out as an example to others. In both cases awards illuminate areas of dedicated service which merit public recognition."
