Info

Awarded for exemplary acts of bravery. Although intended primarily for civilians, it is also awarded to members of the armed forces for actions which would not be deemed suitable for a military decoration. With the introduction of the Queens Gallantry Medal the gallantry awards in the Order of the British Empire came to an end. To date, about 1,000 Queens Gallantry Medal's have been awarded, including 18 bars. A bar is added for a second award. A post-1990 SAS QGM and bar group sold at auction for £26,000.
