Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave and Lady Belgrave hosted outstanding Barbadians honoured in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours to an informal reception after they received insignia at Government House.

Seven of the nine recipients attended the morning ceremony, accompanied by relatives and friends.

Retired private secretary to the Governor General, Patricia Layne, who received the Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), was there with her son Peter, brother Hugh Waithe and nephew Nicholas Waithe.

Kolade and Jamie Nurse together with their mother Eleanor, looked on with pride as their father, retired permanent secretary Lionel Nurse, was pinned with the insignia of Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE).

Colleagues in law enforcement turned out in support of retired deputy commissioner of police Bertie Hinds, another recipient of the OBE.

After the formalities, retired senior superintendents Morgan Greaves, Leonard Broome and Bentley Layne along with Erskine Wickham, who now works for the Regional Security System, and retired deputy commissioner of police Keith Whittaker reminisced about their years in policing.
