Another controversial subject - sorry In general, are the military recipients of the award of MBE/OBE worthy of the award when you consider that for the most part they received it for a short term but high profile MOD project or some similar short term activity (charity event) whilst in the main just doing their job ? Also there is a general concensus that Heads of Corps are obliged to cite a specifiic number of individuals from selected units/formations to ensure a balance of the awards throughout the Army. Before you answer please contrast this with the civilian recipients who have for example devoted their entire lives to voluntary charity work (30 years plus) or won 2 olympic gold, done some magnificent feat or even saved the lives of 100s of people. Comments please Note I am trying to stay impartial on this one !!!!
