The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire was established by King George V in June 1917. The order consists of the ranks shown in the following table. It should be noted that all these ranks denote different holders of the same order.
In December 1918, separate military and civilian divisions were created for The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. The ranks and awards are identical between divisions, the difference being shown by the colour of the ribbon. The Military Division was created to reward distinguished service in action by officers and senior NCOs.
GBE Knight or Dame Grand Cross
KBE or DBE Knight or Dame Commander
The GBE and the MBE are the highest and lowest ranks within this order respectively. For example, a CBE would denote a Commander in The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire and an OBE would denote an Officer in The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire; the CBE being the more senior or higher precedence of the CBE and OBE.
Entry into the order does not have to be at the lowest rank of Member, but membership can't be awarded posthumously. Also a recipient can be promoted within the order, if their future conduct is deemed appropriate of further recognition.
Recipients of the GBE, KBE and DBE would also have the prefix of "Sir" or "Dame" for men and ladies respectively. However, the name prefixes of "Sir" and "Dame" are not specific to this order and are also used in other orders.
