THE QUEEN has been graciously pleased to give orders for the following Honorary appointments in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces:—
Michael Cecil, Admiral the Lord BOYCE, KG, GCB, OBE, DL, as Admiral of the Fleet.

Michael John Dawson, General the Lord WALKER OF ALDRINGHAM, GCB, CMG, CBE, DL, as Field Marshal.

Graham Eric, Air Chief Marshal the Lord STIRRUP, KG, GCB, AFC, as Marshal of the Royal Air Force.
