Reference lack of news coverage of Winkle's passing
Lack of news coverage?
Try putting 'Winkle Brown" into google and searching under news. You'll find about 120 links to news items.

Do we actually know he was not offered a K?
It seems quite possible that he declined to accept, or made it known that he would do so if offered.
We don't know, but I doubt if those of us who knew him would consider it even a possibility that he would have declined.
He was, entirely justifiably, very proud of his many achievements and was neither shy nor given to inappropriate false modesty.

A life well lived, and a source of fascinating stories, both in public and at home.
