    Default MBE - number ow wards during WWII

    Hi all,

    I would like to ask if anyone knows how many MBEs were awarded during the WWII?
    While checking different medals and orders I was always able to find out how many for example DFCs were awarded or how many DSOs (sure not only to the RAF personnel) etc.

    But in the case of the Order of the British empire - CB, OBE, MBE I am not able to figure the numbers.

    Any help much appreciated

    TIA
