A Claret in Mauritius becomes a CSK!

Bhurdwaz Munger, who some may know as Davemanu on some message boards has been awarded a National decoration for a second time by the Government of Mauritius .

In the summer of 1954, Burnley FC made a pioneering visit to the Indian Ocean, when they played three games in Mauritius and one in Madagascar. Bhurdwaz Mungur, from Mauritius, saw Burnley play in his country, and from that day on was hooked. His long-distance commitment to Burnley has never wavered since. Bhurdwaz often goes out of his way to welcome Burnley supporters to his island. He is also a member of the Mauritius Football Association and is involved in running a first division club there, Faucon Flacq SC. Bhurdwaz recently demonstrated his support for Burnley in a practical way, by becoming a member of the Clarets Trust, joining an ever growing band of exiles who are part of the Trust

In 1998 he was elevated to the rank of OSK which means Officer of the Order of Star and Key of Indian Ocean

This time he has been awarded the title of CSK which means Commander of the Order of the Star and Key of Indian Ocean which is equivalent to our country's CBE.

Following an MSN Messenger chat with Bhurdwaz yesterday, he revealed his new honour and it is typical of this gentle humble man to state:

'I would like our fellow Clarets to know one of us has recently been decorated . It is not only a honour for me but to other Claret fans as well . I mean by this Worldwide Clarets fans'

Bhurdwaz has now joined two of the Clarets websites in the 'Family of Clarets', Vital Burnley FC of course and UptheClarets.com. He is a remarkable man and has agreed to write some Columns for the 'Family of Clarets' websites.

We are delighted about this but the main purpose of this article is to congratulate Bhurdwaz on his magnificent achievement in being recognised again by his country and we are sure all Clarets will join us in our congratulations!
