This section provides details of all those men of the Worcestershire Regiment who were awarded the Military Medal during the periods of 1914-20 (World War 1) and 1939-46 (World War 2).
King George V instituted the Military Medal on 25th March 1916 as WW1 generated such a demand for medals. It is awarded to Warrant Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and men for individual or associated acts of bravery on the recommendation of a Commander-in-Chief in the field.
A silver, laurelled bar is awarded for a subsequent act or acts of bravery and devotion under fire.
The front of the medal shows the reigning monarch, while the reverse side shows FOR/BRAVERY/IN THE/ FIELD in four lines, encircled by a laurel wreath and topped by the Royal Cipher and Crown.
