Debrett’s publishes the influence edition of Peerage and Baronetages. In 1982, the publisher diversified away from the aristocracy with its People of Today edition. People of Today a keeps a record of luminaries within the British establishment like newspaper editors or Nobel prize winners.
2012′s People of Today is a much more democratic affair and includes everyone from TV presenters, Olympians to our very own Walking With The Wounded alumni.
To have Karl and Jaco appear in a list of honours that includes this year’s crop of Olympic heroes is a tremendous honour and shows how much these two have achieved despite their life-changing injuries.
Congratulations to both.
