I served with an officer who was awarded the MC. The bloke was a true and utter gentelman and he maintains his anger to this day re the award. He has always stated (over many years) that he was called in and told it was nearing the end of the awards period, and a certain number HAD to be awarded, and he was to receive a MC.
I can only assume it is the truth, because he had never changed his statement.
