Order of the British Empire Medal NEW England police are appealing for public help to find the owners of a rare medal found in Armidale.

Detectives have been trying to find the owner of the Order of the British Empire medal, which was found earlier this month.

Investigators believe the medal could belong to someone residing further afield in the New England.

The Order is usually granted by the government in the United Kingdom and awarded by the current king or queen to individuals who have excelled in the fields of arts, science, public services or in charitable areas.

The medal was found inside a black case, but has no name inscribed in it.

“The medal is awarded for contributions to the arts and sciences, work with charitable and welfare organisations, and public service outside the Civil service,” a New England police spokesperson confirmed.

Police are urging anyone with information on the rightful owners to contact Armidale detectives on 6771 0699.

Beatle John Lennon was once awarded the medal, but he refused to accept it. See the earlier E-Sylum article for more information. -Editor
