Sale price£39.99


Marking the one-hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Order of St John’s Life Saving Medal, and the subsequently introduced Certificate of Honour, For Service in the Cause of Humanity, critically documents the previously untold story of these highly prestigious but little-known awards. Following a detailed discussion of the history and politics of the medals and Certificate of Honour, the book reveals the amazing circumstances behind the awards to the 1,394 people who gained them for their brave and humanitarian actions in 44 countries across the world. The book thus contributes to the enduring recognition of the public-spirited bravery of each and every recipient and offers at the same time a rich legacy to contemporary generations.
