O.B.E. Oh Boy

What does Violet Carson (our Ena Sharples) …

… have in common with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page?

Violet was awarded an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1965. Jimmy was awarded the OBE 40 years later … this past Wednesday.

Jimmy, 61, picked up the OBE for his charity work.

He set up a safe house for street children in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 10 years ago. He said: "The Queen said it was very important work. This is not about my music."

So far, no report on whether Her Majesty asked Jimmy to observe the sign on the Palace wall…
