Another ‘CIE’

 

Sir, – Frank McNally’s mention of “a C.I.E. man” in his “Irishman’s Diary” of January 16th is a reference to Mrs Ethel (Stoney) Turing’s father being a companion member of the Most Eminent Order of the Indian Empire. The British intended this order to be a less exclusive version of the Order of the Star of India and was to reward officials, both British and local, who served the Raj. – Yours, etc,
