      "The little village of Eynsford once again features in the list, with two of its residents honoured.
      They are Mr. John Douglas HINCHCLIFF of "New PLace," Castle Yard, who receives the O.B.E., and Mr. Leslie Eric Starnes, of 67 Polyhaugh, with the M.B.E.
      Mr. HINCHCLIFF is a Senior Principal Scientific Officer in the Ministry of Defence. He is Assistant Director of the Electrical Quality Assurance Directorate at Bromley.
      Educated at Kingswood School, Bath, he obtained a degree in engineering at London University in 1939. He began as a probationary inspector with the Post Office in 1936 and has had over 25 years with the Civil Service.
      Mr. HINCHCLIFF has been concerned with engineering in electronics, and believes his award may be connected with work in this field, undertaken with European Countries."

      NOTES & QUERIES:
      His niece Wendy HELMS wrote in April 2013:
      "I was recently directed to your website for information about my uncle, John D. HINCHCLIFF. He died of stomach cancer in 1977 having living for many years in Eynsford, Kent. I was curious about not being able to find evidence of John's OBE though I had been shown the medal by his wife, Enid, in 1988. I believe he got the award for developing equipment for the postal service which greatly enhanced efficiency."
