– The Adventure of The Bruce Partington Plans (BRUC)
Earlier this year, February 4, 2016 to be precise, the co-creator of BBC’s Sherlock, Steven Moffat, received his Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) from Prince Charles.
The badge for the OBE is in the form of a cross patonce (having the arms growing broader and floriated toward the end), the obverse of which bears the left facing busts of King George V and Queen Mary; the reverse bears George V’s Royal and Imperial Cypher. Both are within a ring bearing the motto of the Order. The badges are plain gold (unlike the enamelled CBE badge), and is suspended from a ribbon that is rose-pink with pearl-grey edges, with the addition of a pearl-grey central stripe for the military division.
