Honouors Medal

Nominations must be received by Friday 16th May 2014. Final recommendations for honours in HM The Queen’s list are considered in the United Kingdom, recommendations for the Certificate and Badge of Honour are considered locally.

It is stressed that for any Award, long service is not, in itself, enough. Nominations must be supported by a persuasive account of the outstanding or innovative or self-sacrificing services and achievements of the nominee, whether paid or unpaid, in one field or several, and what has raised them above those of others performing similar services.

Details of how to prepare honours nominations, and the necessary forms, can be found here. Please make every effort to fully complete all the relevant sections. Once completed, the forms should be submitted to the Governor’s Office. The Governor will review all nominations before recommending candidates to the Royal, Ceremonial and Honours Unit in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London.

Whilst all recommendations will be acknowledged, the Governor’s Office cannot enter into correspondence about the action taken on them.
