MBE

Today, in 1965, the Fab four went to Buckingham Palace to receive their Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) medals from Queen Elizabeth II.

John Lennon would later say that they were so nervous at the idea of the meeting with the Queen that they went into the bathroom and smoked marijuana. George Harrison would correct Lennon’s claim, telling that it was a regular cigarette.

Four years later, in 1969, Lennon sent back his MBE. He wrote: “Your Majesty, I am returning my MBE as a protest against Britain’s involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam and against ‘Cold Turkey’ slipping down the charts. With love. John Lennon of Bag.”

Enjoy!!
