It's a British Empire award and you don't get anything for it except the kudos of having letters after your name. The awards rise until you could be a Lord, etc but you may only ever get one award anyway. They are given out to people that have been deemed to have deserved them as they've done a lot of charity work, etc.

Order of the British Empire, given to people who certain people in power think deserve it, not everyone agrees with who gets chosen though!

The Order of the British Empire is an old-fashioned reward for supporting whatever government happens to be in power at the time... or is that a peerage?
