Keen shooter and sporting cartoonist Bryn Parry and his wife Emma have each been awarded an OBE in honour of their contribution to founding the charity Help for Heroes. Responding to news of the honours, Mr Parry paid tribute to the efforts of Help for Heroes’ many fundraisers. He said: “It was very embarrassing — that was our first reaction. It’s very awkward when you consider all the things other people have been doing.”
