Beatle News  # 25: 

  •  1969- John Lennon returns his MBE (Member of Order of the British Empire); which he, along with the rest of The Beatles, received four years earlier (see  # 23); to HRH Queen Elizabeth – II.

Lennon returned his MBE insignia, citing his reasons in a letter that read, “I am  returning this MBE in protest against Britain’s involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, against our support of American involvement in Vietnam war, and against Cold Turkey (a song written by John Lennon) slipping down the charts.”

This Day,
Nuwan Sen & The Beatles ()
