DetailsMedal Presentation Set featuring Hors de Combat full-size and miniature Commemorative medals, matching ribbon brooch bar and presentation case.
Hors de Combat – to put out of the fight; out of action – is the expression used on service records of persons put out of action due to wounds or injury.
The Hors de Combat Commemorative Medal is also available posthumously to next of kin of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. This medal, which will be distinguished by an exclusively designed poppy on the ribbon for posthumous recognition, can be cherished and kept as a fitting tribute to the loss of a loved one who sacrificed their life for their country.
In more peaceful times, the acknowledged bravery of our servicemen and women during war and peacekeeping actions, is often forgotten. The Hors de Combat pays tribute as a lasting reminder of the sacrifices made in the line of duty.
The Hors de Combat Medal is available to all uniformed personnel of First and Second World Wars and all former or presently serving uniformed servicemen and women. It is available to those in the uniformed service sector such as police and fire service, etc, whom sustained wounds or injury in the line of duty. Next of kin or direct descendants can also apply. It is also available posthumously to next of kin of those people who lost their lives serving their country. A poppy on the ribbon will distinguish this medal.
