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.
