Milkman Tony Fowler received an MBE from the Queen somberly dressed as a Friesian cow.
The MBE madman wore a dark suit sewn with white patches to receive the award, with a fetching cow-patterned tie.
On the award, he told Metro: “It’s very humbling to be here and a privilege and I regard this MBE as something for all milkmen. Normally they are quiet people – if they do something they don’t want to be recognised – so this is for all of them.”
He was awarded the Member of the British Empire honour for services in his hometown of Melton Mowbray, where he helps Police and vulnerable residents, as well as delivering milk.
We imagine the Queen dressed normally.
