    If you search in the London Gazette for the following text phrase

    http://www.gazettes-online.co.uk/search

    "beard M.B.E."

    One finds an I M Beard with Serial number 111218 and you can search then for that number and among other promotions you will find:

    Gazette Issue 36866 published on the 29 December 1944.
    To be Additional Members of the Military Division of the said Most Excellent Order:—
    Acting Flight Lieutenant Ivor Maurice Beard (111218), Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve.

    He seems to have been born in 1915 and passed away in 1996.
