    • Citation in EDP reads:
      Just a few weels after the announcment of his retirement as Honorary Steward and Surveyor to the Dean and Chapter of Nprwich Cathedral, Mr Percy Victor Howes is given the OBE for his services to both the cathedral and handicapped people.
      His formal appointment as Steward was 20 years ago, but he had in fact first acted for the Dean and Chapter in 1933.
      His period of service covered the post-war restoiration period which saw £300,000 raised and spent on restoring the whole fabric of the cathedral from the apse to the West doors.
      It has been with sufferers of multiple sclerosis that Mr Howes' work for the handicapped has been concerned for many years. IN 1956n he played a major part in the formation of the Norwich branch of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
      His wife suffered from the disease for more than 40 years and it was this which inspired him to help others. As chairman of the society he worked tirelessly for 17 years.
