This new award has been created to provide national recognition for the families of Armed Forces personnel who have died on operations or as a result of an act of terrorism.
The Elizabeth Cross and Memorial Scroll are granted to the Next of Kin of UK Armed Forces personnel who have died on operations or as a result of an act of terrorism in national recognition of their loss and sacrifice. The Elizabeth Cross is not a posthumous medal for the fallen but an emblem demonstrating tangible national recognition for Service families for their loss. Not all deaths of Service personnel are included in this scheme.
