Medals, Decorations and Awards

The Museum holds a selection of medals, decorations and badges gifted to our collection. In recognition of services rendered, many men and women of the Navy have been awarded medals to commemorate their commitment and achievements. Behind each group of medals lies a fascinating story of one individual’s contribution in the service of their country. These are treasured possessions held in the Museum as a memorial to their endeavours.
