FOR EXEMPLARY BRAVERY
Written by Nick Metcalfe, a former British Army officer, For Exemplary Bravery will become the standard reference about the Queen’s Gallantry Medal.

For Exemplary Bravery begins by providing a short history of United Kingdom gallantry awards, primarily those awarded for gallantry by civilians or by military personnel ‘not in the face of the enemy’. It explains in detail, for the first time, why the Queen's Gallantry Medal was instituted and why the Royal Warrant was amended in 1977 to allow for posthumous awards. It explores the relationship between the Queen's Gallantry Medal and other awards for gallantry in the Honours Systems of the United Kingdom, Crown dependencies, British Overseas Territories and Commonwealth realms.

Based on research at the Royal Mint, the design of the medal, the artists involved and details of the medal's production are also examined. The original artwork for the reverse design is revealed, as are alternative designs proposed for the ribbon.

At the heart of this book are the stories of extraordinary bravery that earned the Queen's Gallantry Medal. Each recipient is detailed and all of the published citations are included, with explanatory notes, personal recollections from many of the recipients, and the details of their other awards and medals. Also included are citations never before published. Thirteen appendices provide first-hand accounts of the events behind some of the acts of bravery—bomb disposal, rescuing others from the sea and from fire, and even repelling pirates in the Indian Ocean.

Queen's Gallantry Medal

For Exemplary Bravery is lavishly illustrated with pictures of the recipients, images from the scenes of the incidents where they reacted so gallantly, and full colour photographs of many of their medals groups.
