Don't miss out on a Merchant Navy Medal

15 May 2018

Time is running out if you want to put forward a candidate for this year's Merchant Navy Medal awards. 

Nominations for the 2018 Merchant Navy Medal for Meritorious Service need to be submitted by Thursday 31 May. 

The prestigious state award is made to those who have served at sea in the Merchant Navy or fishing fleets, normally for at least 20 years, and have made a significant contribution - some of which can be in a shore-based capacity. 

Over the last two years the medals have been presented by The Princess Royal to men and women who have contributed towards areas such as maritime safety, improved efficiency, training, welfare, and saving life at sea.
