In For Services To Myself, college lecturer Roger Banks has been awarded an OBE which means a visit to Buckingham Palace to receive the award from the Queen herself. Whilst this should be a cause of great celebration it doesn’t seem that way to life-long socialist Roger. Having been an opponent of the establishment all his life should he even accept the honour.
There was also a feature in the weeks TV Times about the Queen’s honour and how for the average person an OBE was pretty the highest honour that was available with an MBE the most common. There was also a short piece about Alan Dobie in the same issue. He hadn’t been seen too much on TV at the time (it was six years since he starred in a full series, Diamond Crack Diamond). A couple of years later he would go to his best remembered role that of Victorian detective sergeant Cribb in the series ITV series Cribb.
