PETER BARNETT received an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) from the Queen in Buckingham Palace, London, England for services rendered. In Bali on October 2002 there was a terrible bombing, killing a total of 202 people, including 28 British nationals. Peter fell into the role of co-ordinating the efforts of British volunteers (about 55) who offered their services to assist in the many unpleasant and emotionally trying tasks that were required in the aftermath of the bomb. Peter's wife and eldest child were amongst the volunteer force that was assembled to help. At the time he was dubbed "Mr Fix-It" by some of the British press.
