More than 100 members of the armed forces are to be awarded military honours.
Praising the recipients of the honours, Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said: "In a changing world the bravery and commitment to duty of our servicemen and women remains unswerving.
"Whether fighting for our security on operations abroad or rescuing mountaineers and sailors within the British Isles, they deserve our gratitude and respect.
"I hope that the awards announced today go some way to underlining how much this country values the efforts and sacrifices of our Armed Forces."
