Mentions of Sir Boris Uvarov in the London Gazette

The first mention of Boris Uvarov in The London Gazette is the announcement of his naturalization on Tuesday, 20th July 1943 (#36101). The Gazette uses the 'z' spelling of naturalisation. Uvarov's Oath of Allegiance was taken on the 8th June 1943.


At some point, Uvarov acquired the post-nominal letters CMG as a Companion to the Order of St Michael and St George. The date given for this in biographies (e.g. Wigglesworth, 1971) is 1943, although I have as yet not found any evidence of this being published in the Gazette.

A further mention in 1948 (#38485) grants permission for Uvarov (already a CMG at this point) to wear the Belgian decoration Commander of the Order of the Lion.

The final mention I have found in the Gazette is the promotion from CMG (Companion) to KCMG (Knight Commander) in 1961 (#42370).
