The most famous member of Beatles, John Lennon wrote the letter and returned MBE (The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) medal in  September 1st 1969  to the Queen on the protest of British involvement in Nigeria-Biafra war. Queen Elizabeth made  Beatles -"Members of the Order of the British Empire in 1965, in recognition of the huge revenues they generated when they opened the U.S. market to British pop music. In 1969, Lennon sent his MBE medal back with the letter."

Your Majesty,

 

I am returning my MBE as a protest against Britain's involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam and against 'Cold Turkey' slipping down the charts.

 

With love. John Lennon of Bag "
