A NEW ORDER.- HONOURS FOR WAR WORK.
DAMES OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE.
THE FIRST LIST.
Announced:- The Times | August 25, 1917, p. 7 & 8
The first lists are published today of appointments to the two new Orders - the Order of the British Empire and the Order of the Companions of Honour, which have been instituted by the King in recognition of the manifold services, voluntary and other, which have been rendered both by British subjects and their Allies in connexion with the war.
The Order of the British Empire has five classes, namely:-
1. Knights Grand Cross (G.B.E.)
2. Knights Commanders (K.B.E.)
3. Commanders (C.B.E.)
4. Officers (O.B.E.)
5. Members (M.B.E.)
1. Dames Grand Cross (G.B.E.)
2. Dames Commanders (D.B.E.)
3. Commanders (C.B.E.)
4. Officers (O.B.E)
5. Members (M.B.E.)
The first two classes, in the case, of men, carry the honour of Knighthood, and in the case of women the privilege of prefixing the title "Dame" to their names. Altogether 268 appointments have been made to the Order, and in addition the Medal of the Order has been awarded to 52 men and women, most of whom are workers in munition factories, for " acts of great courage, self-sacrifice, or high example; of initiative or perseverance; of skill, resource, or invention."
Seventeen appointments are made to the Order of the Companions of Honour. This Order carries with it no title or precedence, and is conferred upon a limited number of persons for whom this special distinction seems to be the most appropriate form of recognition, constituting an honour dissociated either from the acceptance of title or the classification of merit.
THE ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE.
After consultation with the Government of India and the Dominions, it has been agreed that lists for India and the Dominions should appear at a subsequent date.
