British Empire Medal

The British Empire Medal (Medal of the Order of the British Empire for Meritorious Service) is a British medal awarded for meritorious civil or military service worthy of recognition by the crown. While recipients are not technically members of the Order of the British Empire this honour is nevertheless affiliated with it. It is no longer awarded in the UK but some Commonwealth realms such as the Bahamas and Cook Islands still confer it as of 2007.
