Rise, SIR WESLEY WINFIELD HALL!

After kneeling to be ceremonially dubbed by Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave yesterday, the West Indies fast bowler and cricket legend rose proudly to receive the insignia of Knighthood during a morning investiture ceremony at Government House.

Sir Wesley’s children Dr Kerry Hall and Sean Hall as well as former cricket teammates Sir Garfield Sobers, Charles Griffith and Rawle Brancker were among those congratulating him on the accolade he received in the Queen’s birthday honours this year for his service to sport and the community.

Reverend Oscar Millar, recognized for services to the Methodist Church, education and the community, and Dr George Reid for his services to the financial sector, were presented with insignia of the Commander Of The British Empire (CBE).

Senator Dr Frances Chandler, honoured for service to agriculture, and Hensley Robinson, for public service in the area of the electoral process, were presented with their Order Of The British Empire (OBE) insignia.

Sir Elliott also presented the Member Of The British Empire (MBE) insignia to Collis Blackman for service to labour relations and David Harding for service to the maritime industry. (GC)
