Nominations are sought for the 2021 Merchant Navy Medal for Meritorious Service

Nominations are sought for the 2021 Merchant Navy Medal for Meritorious Service and other National Honours. 

This is a prestigious State Award with a place in the Order of Wear. 

It is open for persons in the UK, Channel Islands, or Isle of Man who are serving within the Merchant Navy or fishing fleets ashore and afloat, in recognition of exemplary service and devotion to duty, rewarding those who have set an outstanding example to others.

Awards will be announced on Merchant Navy Day – 3rd September 2021.

There are no deadlines for the receipt of nomination forms, but as awards of the medal will normally only be made once a year, towards the end of the year, nominations need to be received by the end of May in order to be considered in the current year.
