Adjutant General, Lieutenant General Gerald Berragan, will introduce the bravery awards at London's National Army Museum with a tribute to the 107 service personnel being honoured. He will say:
Every day in Afghanistan our service men and women face mortal danger. They do this with the full knowledge of the danger presented by a clever and ruthless enemy.
Although just a small fraction of them are here today I pay tribute to all of them.
This list recognises the achievement and bravery of individuals across a number of theatres of operation but inevitably includes many people who served in Afghanistan last winter under the command of 20 Armoured Brigade.
Three soldiers have received prestigious Army awards for their selfless acts of bravery which saved the lives of comrades in Afghanistan.
A soldier who led a bayonet charge through insurgent enemy fire and another who fought on after being shot in the head have been honoured.
