Keith, I am so, so sorry that I didn't thank you for finding this for me before. Somehow I overlooked it in the excitement of updating my records.
It does mean a lot to me as I remember this grandad who died when I was 7, and I am very grateful. I thought I had searched all the Lodon Gazettes but either I was doing it wrong or somehow missed this one.
The award was as a member of the civil division of the most excellent order of the British empire and it was an MBE - I went back through the pages, but I also have the letter from Buck house but it doesn't contain dates, what for etc,
Thanks again,

I think he received a O.B.E. Issue 38311 4th June 1948, page 17 Thomas Frederick MOORE, Esq., Superintendent, Mercantile Marine Office Stores, Ministry of Transport. Keith

can anyone tell me how to find out whenand why my grandfather got the MBE? I don't know when it was awarded to Thomas Frederick Moore apart from it was unable to be presented by King George either due to the war or the King's illness. I tried the London Gazette but couldb't find it. Any ideas? Thanks
