BFBS trustee receives MBE from the King at Windsor Castle

Long standing BFBS trustee Howard Perlin has received an MBE.

Mr Perlin, 76, received his gong from the King at Windsor Castle on Tuesday after being recognised in the late Queen’s last Birthday Honours for services to broadcasting.

In his nearly 30 years on the board of trustees, Mr Perlin has seen BFBS staff help keep up morale in places such as Iraq and Afghanistan and bring connectivity to those in hard-to-reach postings, like Gurkhas serving in Nepal.

Mr Perlin, an accountant and Vice Chairman of the board, said: “I am honoured and delighted to receive this award.

“When I first joined BFBS, we sent a lot of live entertainment shows around the world,” he said. “Now, in addition, we have the ability to reach ships at sea with live sport.

“It has been a privilege to be a trustee of BFBS and to have observed at close hand the wonderful work BFBS does for our service communities.

“This award is also a testament to the high esteem in which BFBS is held.”
