Jump to: navigation, search

The New Year Honours 1972 were appointments in many of the Commonwealth realms of Queen Elizabeth II to various orders and honours to reward and highlight good works by citizens of those countries. They were announced in supplements to the London Gazette of 31 December 1971 to celebrate the year passed and mark the beginning of 1972.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

At this time honours for Australians were awarded both in the United Kingdom honours, on the advice of the premiers of Australian states, and also in a separate Australia honours list.[2]

Recipients of honours are displayed here as they were styled before their new honours.
