Class of ’69 seems to be leading the way in the Queen’s Honours stakes. Happy to be proven wrong.
2013 Geoff Mirkin (#2015) MNZM for Services to the Community (sorry Geoff 1969 was when you were supposed to finish!).
2018 John Guthrie (#1885) MNZM for Services to Education and Sport
2019 Dugald MacTavish (#1763) QSM for Services to conservation and the environment
Stop Press: oops may be proven wrong already .... were the 3 knights (Edgar, Smith and Davies) in the same class? If yes then that trumps my 'fun fact'. Congratulations to Sir Julian Smith for being awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Otago at the Graduation on 17th August. And congratulations to Sir John Davies for being admitted to the NZ Business Hall of fame - well deserved Sir.
