Wearing of Unearned Medals

Many thanks to all those who took part in our ‘Wearing of Unearned Medals’ survey.

We shared our findings with the House of Commons Defence Select Committee who will use this evidence when The Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill has its Second Reading in the House of Commons later this month.

The bill is intended to ‘prohibit the wearing or public display, by a person not entitled to do so, of medals or insignia awarded for valour, with the intent to deceive’.

Thank you once again for taking the time to share your views on this important matter.
