We appreciate how frustrating the process must be but please be assured that Sir John Holmes and everyone else involved in the military medals review is working hard to bring the issues raised to a resolution.
As you know, HD Committee met in late January 2014 to discuss a number of proposals put forward by Sir John regarding the rules for awarding military medals. These covered the majority of the outstanding claims for medallic recognitions and the Committee’s recommendations have now received Royal approval in the usual way; a few claims require further work and an announcement will be made as soon as possible when the full set of reviews is complete and has been approved.
You must understand that many government departments have an interest in medals and need to be consulted. This is currently underway. No decisions have yet been made about what form such an announcement will take.
We hope this helps to clarify matters.
