A question of the OBE?

Discussion in 'Waltenkommando' started by chocolate_frog, Dec 10, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Not neccesarily a Walt, but I have been asked about the following.

    A bod has the initials KtGC OBE after their name. The OBE doesn't seem to be in the London Gazette and the only references to KtGC seems to indicate it is either defunct or should be BEFORE the name.

    Any ideas?

    Could he be linked to this bunch of nutters? Knight_Dajon_Lyon KtGC.OTNC | The New Crusaders They seem to be quite keen on giving out Knight Grand Cross Order of Your Choice awards.

    Were he to be a Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire, his post nominals would be GBE.
  3. That's what I figured, and there aren't many GBEs handed out really, especially to those younger than 40. And the OBE would be Gazetted.

    This guys full title is Lord [first name] [surname] KtGC OBE. Apparently he's quite quiet about his titles when questioned.

    Seems to be in keeping with this lunatic too...

    Lord Lowndes M.A KtGC. OBE - Welcome
