Order of Bath
The article states that Gairdner was created a Commander of the Order of Bath.
This confused me as there are no "commanders", only "knight commanders"; and he's not called Sir James Gairdner.
His listing within the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography makes no mention of receiving the Order of Bath. And I can't find anything online referring to him as "Sir".
