If you have even a year for date, you can search the London Gazette on-line. The search engine can be hit and miss, especially with earlier [pre-1900] issues, as the character recognition software has problems with some [older] type faces, but generally its a good source.

Nothing in the gazette (doesn't mean he's not there as the software company who did the search engine robbed them blind and it often tells lies). Will try other sources.

Not mentioned in Seedies rolls which give all naval honours and awards from 1939-60, Not in any of the DSO books from 1885-2008 unless Cyril is a nick name there are no Cyril Colbournes (or variations of the spelling of Colbourne) listed anywhere.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
