Hugh Jefferies, SG Catalogues, and GSM Editor, gets an MBE!

Hugh Jefferies, SG stamp Catalogues, and GSM Editor, gets an MBE.
The official wording in the Queen's Birthday Honours List was -

Member Of The British Empire (MBE) - Mr Anthony Hugh Mostyn Jefferies – Editor, Gibbons Stamp Monthly and Stamp Catalogues. For services to Philately.

Hugh Jefferies, SG Catalogue and GSM Editor gets an MBE.

VERY well deserved. :mrgreen:

I’ve known Hugh for decades, and how on earth one person juggles as many jobs and tasks as he does, continually amazes me, as I’ve commented on in the past many times.

The endless stream of SG Catalogues of all types, shapes and sizes, would be a job most companies would have a big team of folks working on, and the huge "Gibbons Stamp Monthly" ditto, yet for very many years he has done the lion’s share of both, as far as I understand. 8)

He told me last recently his attempt to ease into a more retirement based phase has not succeeded too well, and he is still working near as many hours as he always did!

Great to see anyone in stamps getting these honours … I recall Max Stern got an MBE years ago for "Services To Philately", and there are precious few others on that list to be honest.

I just wonder now if we now need to bow or curtsey to him. :D

Here is a short YouTube clip Hugh did for GSM –

Having a very steady, savvy, and experienced hand at the tiller for such important resources, is a stabilising and secure outcome, and do not underestimate the value of that for an ordered stamp market.

I would also like to congratulate Hugh, as Glen stated he is a machine when it comes to work load yet also always available for a chat or advise when needed.

Hugh is one of the few individuals in life that is truly passionate about his work and his role in keeping collectors informed and updated.

He is also a Lakatoi collector so also all good in my book.

Nice one Hugh.

According a cursory search of the The Gazette, the only people who have been awarded an honour for services to philately are:
  • 1979 Campbell George Paterson MBE
  • 1987 Bissoondeal Hazareesing MBE
  • 1990 Marcel Charles Stanley OBE
  • 2012 David Richard Beech MBE
  • 2012 Richard John West MBE
  • 2015 Anthony Hugh Mostyn Jeffries MBE
There may be more, as on this list there are MBE and OBE sprinkled throughout. Or they may have received their honour for other reasons.

Unfortunately, Sir is not a prefix that can be used, at least within earshot of of any officious monarchist. :lol:

The MBE or OBE aren't the only honours to services to philately.

Also in this week's honours....
Norfolk's Eastern Daily Press wrote:Renowned artist Robert Gillmor from Cley has been made an MBE for his services to wildlife art.

The 78-year-old from Cley has designed 42 British stamps, with linocuts of birds and other animals, and illustrated more than 200 books including covers for the New Naturalist series.

But his award, for services to wildlife art, is for encouraging others through the Society of Wildlife Artists which he founded in the early 1960s.

“We first started in 1960 trying to get all the wildlife artists together but could only raise 35. That developed into the society which had its first exhibition in 1964 and now has 80 members, more keen to join and an annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London,” he said.

Mr Gillmor is president of the Reading Ornithological Society, where he has been a member from childhood and has designed the cover for its annual report without a break since 1949.

He and wife Susan (also an artist painting under the name of Susan Norman) moved to Cley 17 years ago.

The birthday honour was a “surprise and an honour”, added Mr Gillmor, who continues to work - with more stamps in the pipeline.

Robert's credits include all four of the Birds Post and Go sets (24 stamps), and all three of the Farm Animals Post and Go sets (18 stamps) - pigs, cattle, and sheep.

Does anyone know how to update Wikipedia entries?

Be nice if someone can update this for the MBE award -

And by all means free to add the pic I used above that I captured.

The correct terminology, despite what is reported in the OP, is "Order Of The British Empire, Civil: Member " or as shown below.

He isn't a Member of the British Empire; he is a (Civil) Member of (the Order of) the British Empire.

Ranks of the Order of the British Empire are (in descending order):

Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE)
Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE)
Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE)

Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE)

The official paper signed by the Queen refers to 'Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire', etc.

The top levels are actually:
Knight Grand Cross ..... (GBE) or Dame Grand Cross
Knight Commander .....(KBE) or Dame Commander (DBE)
Then Ordinary Commander ....(CBE) etc.

There is another Order, the Order of St Michael and St George, that is usually awarded to Civil Servants and the top grades are CMG, KCMG, and GCMG. It is said that CMG Means 'Call Me God', KMG means 'Kindly Call Me God', and that GCMG means 'God Calls Me God'!

A lot of heraldic devices and medals have appeared on stamps. I don't believe that the Order of the British Empire has figured on a British stamp. Does anyone know if any other country has issued stamps showing this Order? (I suppose there might have been if we still had an Empire!)

This applies generally, not to MBE's specifically. So the Queen MAY perform the investiture for all MBE's but she does not do ALL honours (maybe not BEMs)
Members of the public who are awarded an honour in either the New Year's Honours List or The Queen's Birthday Honours List receive their award at a ceremony known as an Investiture.

Each year, around 2,600 people receive their awards personally from The Queen or a member of the Royal Family.

Around 25 Investitures are held each year. The majority happen in the Ballroom at Buckingham Palace, but others take place at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, in the Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle, and sometimes at Cardiff Castle in Wales.

Each investiture involves the award of a whole range of honours (invluding the new BEM).

Recipients parade and are presented in order of their honours, starting with the knighthoods.

The Queen has increasingly delegated the job of attending and presenting awards to Charles, Anne, and now William.

I notice Pop singer Van Morrison got a Knighthood which rather surprised me. A great talent for sure (30-50 years back) and somewhat of a grumpy old man in recent decades, so interesting he got on any new Honours list, as he already got an OBE years back.

As he is Irish born, doesn't that become an issue? I seem to recall Bob Geldoff got a 'quasi' Knighthood but was not technically allowed to be referred to as Sir Bob, as he was Irish born. Anyone know the "rules" here?

Well, just to educate you on the finer points of the Emerald Isle, Dublin is the capital of the republic, hence Geldof is a foreigner - not even a Commonwealth Citizen like you. Belfast, on the other hand, is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and has Queen Elizabeth II as head of state.

We actually drove around the Emerald Isle for a couple of weeks less than a year back, from Northern point to most Southern point, so I do have a more than passing understanding of the nuances, more so than most I imagine.

I had understood Morrison was born among the 'rebellious rabble' (as one Brit termed them to me) down south. Not so it seems. :mrgreen:

Still does not explain why he got a Knighthood at 69. If Jimmy Page is an OBE and Eric Clapton is a CBE, and Pete Townshend rather incredibly has ZERO awards as far as I know (unless he has refused them?) and Roger Daltry got a CBE in 2005, Van must have a closet fan somewhere. :lol:

These honours are the result of recommendations made to a government honours committee. Anyone can make a recommendation but the succesful ones come in practice from leaders of prominent regional and national organisations and public bodies.

I'd guess that the recommendation in the case of Van Morrison came from Belfast, where he has a number of awards already from the City Council and the universities.

Well thank goodness you are not on the awards selection committee. :idea:

Townshend has a totally clean record, the same as yours or mine I'd suggest. And adding a 3 year old link here, and no follow up of him being totally cleared, is hardly balanced or relevant. :roll:

Following a four-month investigation, the Metropolitan police said Townshend "was not in possession of any downloaded child abuse images,"

Mick Jagger was sentenced to 3 months prison, and taken away in handcuffs to Brixton Prison for 3 nights. That was later appealed but it did not stop Sir Mick's Knighthood you may have noticed. :idea:

Image

I suspect some existing Knights have a ton more to worry about re kiddie issues than Mr Townshend, like Sir Cliff Richard as has been widely discussed.

While researching this I was amazed that sexual predator monster Jimmy Saville did not have his Knighthood removed from the record books after his death. Seems like you need to be alive and like Rolf Harris, convicted of the crimes whilst alive, to have them removed.

From Wiki:
George Ivan (Van) Morrison was born on 31 August 1945, at 125 Hyndford Street, Bloomfield, Belfast, Northern Ireland, as the only child of George Morrison, a shipyard electrician, and Violet Stitt Morrison, a singer and tap dancer in her youth. Van Morrison's family roots descend from the Ulster Scots population that settled in Belfast

While researching this I was amazed that sexual predator monster Jimmy Saville did not have his Knighthood removed from the record books after his death. Seems like you need to be alive and like Rolf Harris, convicted of the crimes whilst alive, to have them removed.
From The Guardian in 2012:

Those calling for the late Sir Jimmy Savile to be stripped of his knighthood, including the Sun, may well be wasting their time, as the Cabinet Office has revealed that individuals cease to hold the honour after they die.

The Cabinet Office confirmed on Tuesday morning that in Savile's case there was no knighthood to revoke, after David Cameron had raised the prospect of the Jim'll Fix It presenter being posthumously stripped of the honour in the wake of allegations of sexual abuse against young girls.

"It's a living order and then you cease to be a member when you die," a Cabinet Office spokesman said. "There isn't an honour to revoke."

I had understood Morrison was born among the 'rebellious rabble' (as one Brit termed them to me) down south. Not so it seems. :mrgreen:

Still does not explain why he got a Knighthood at 69. If Jimmy Page is an OBE and Eric Clapton is a CBE, and Pete Townshend rather incredibly has ZERO awards as far as I know (unless he has refused them?) and Roger Daltry got a CBE in 2005, Van must have a closet fan somewhere. :lol:
Pete Townshend's little scrape with the law in regard to downloading child pornography will ensure he doesn't ever receive an honour. The Who are one of my favourite bands, and remain so, despite his police caution and placement on the sex offender's register.
With kind regards, Jim

Wikipedia makes it quite complex for anyone to upload a photo. You have to affirm that you are the copyright holder or provide written permission from the copyright holder, and you have to assign it to a 'creative commons' license category. You can't just put up a photo, even if you are sure it is OK to do so.

They have a mass of 'sheriffs' who jump on anyone disregarding the rules. It is a bit of a pain in the neck!

It's not Wikipedia that makes it quite complex to add a photograph, it's the law. Wikipedia implement the law, to avoid potentially very expensive law suits :)

Yes, of course, but the point is that they implement it very rigidly. When I uploaded a photo that was taken by a friend who said there was no objection I still had to scan a signed letter from the friend confirming that it could be uploaded.

In this case, there would need to be a letter from SG, unless they had released the photo with a creative commons licence permitting reuse. (I don't know how you'd find that out).

You'd think that SG might want to do this on Wikipedia themselves as publicity for the company and for Hugh.

I understand what you're saying, but how else would you implement a law? Just sometimes? Just a little bit? Just pick the bits of the law that you want to?

Maybe SG has a press section on their website (I don't know) and in that section any available images may have a CC licence?

But Wikipedia isn't a publicity/advertising website - it's an encyclopedia :)

Using images found online is a tricky business - "fair use" is a particularly tricky minefield! Every image online has a creator and therefore a copyright holder (including CC - the copyright holder still has copyright, but allows his/her images to be used elsewhere via the CC licence) - with the obvious exception of images that are "out of copyright" due to their age (though, there are a multitude of different laws in different countries regarding this.)

I would imagine that someone should ask the photographer.
