A wonderful man and a character. Was lucky and honoured to have known him and spent time with him for several evening meals. He with John Major also opened our new Offices/Workshops in Huntingdon at Lola when completed.

A superb commentator who really knew what he was talking about.
RIP, Murray. Deserved a knighthood in my opinion.

Excellent idea. Can people be knighted posthumously? :question:

Mr Google says
Unfortunately not. Unlike a medal such as the Victoria Cross which is often awarded posthumously, A knighthood is a lifelong honorary title, historically it was a way of making someone a nobleman, when only noblemen could own land. Nowadays it is a purely ceremonial title. However it can only be awarded to the living.
