The Major General's Commendation For Bravery ?

#2
It’s another way of rewarding bravery/excellence without filling out the honours and awards paperwork and going through the whole “how can you justify this award” rigmarole. Much like the commanders coin

I got a Lord Lieutenants cert for a scary 5 minutes in Iraq. At the time, the OC said its one down from an MBE? Anyone know if there is such a 'pecking order'?

Yep, your 'award' is one down from a 'Hearty Handclasp' but two up from a 'Meh'.
Once upon a time a hearty handclasp used to come with it, but then Blair started appointing some very strange people as Lords Lieutenant, stating he wanted to get away from the military baggage that went with the appointment. Strange really considering they were the Sovereign's representative in the County, originally charged among other things with raising local militias - invariably Chairman of what was then TAVRA and the county ACF.

To - sort of - halt the thread drift. Nice to see the recipient in working dress and the GOC LD in full fig to present it. With many of his predecessors it would definitely have been the other way round. Is this one thing today's army is doing better than 'the bad old days', or a one-off?

Nice to see that he's wearing his sleeves down.
