Recommendations for British honours and awards

From the National Archives at Kew:

This month sees VE Day, the annual commemoration of the end of the Second World War in Europe. You can search thousands of recommendations for honours and awards to British army personnel, along with those of the dominions. Why not have a look to see if your father, uncle, grandfather or another relative who served in the war was recommended for a medal?

This collection also contains details of a small number of awards to members of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Royal Air Force, and of decorations exchanged between British and allied armies. The records date from 1935 to 1990, so you may be able to find relatives who served in more recent conflicts. Search the collection now.
