1.08 University degrees, professional designations, military decorations, honours, awards and memberships

Give these and other distinctions in abbreviated form after the name of the bearer:

  • Marta Borowska, MABLS
  • The Rev. Edwin O’Malley, SJ
  • The Hon. John Smith, BComLLD
  • T. S. Wong, PhDFRSC

Unless all honours have to be indicated for information or protocol purposes, no more than two abbreviations need follow a person’s name—as, for example, in correspondence. Select the two highest honours of different types and list them in the following 1.08-1 order of precedence: first, distinctions conferred directly by the Crown (VC, QC, etc.); second, university degrees; and third, letters denoting membership in societies and other distinctions. Note that no periods are used.
