George Pickett Honoured MBE


George Pickett and his wife photographed when he received his honour with an MBE.

I have found not the Echo clipping but one from the Castle Point Clarion for 1977. I have attached the clipping for you to read. It states:

Castle Points grand old man – County Councillor George A Pickett – has been honoured by the Queen with the award of MBE.

The news that ‘Mr Canvey’ ( a title he got for his constant advocating of the Island at national conferences) had been honoured has been received with universal acclaim.

  • It’s the MBE, lines on edge of the ribbon looks pre 1952 as it has the Kings crown on it.

  • Sorry but it is definitely not pre 1952. This photo was taken later in his life more likely around about the time he retired which was in 1977.
