    Honours and awards reviewed

    Recommended Posts

    Hi all

    This article was in the October 18, 2007 issue of 'Navy News' :-

    'A review into Defence honours, awards and commendation policies has been announced and your views are being sought.

    The changing nature of warfare and the high operational tempo has meant that current recognition methods may not be

    meeting contemporary Defence and community expectations. As a result, the Chiefs of Service Committee (COSC) has

    agreed that it is time to look at how service, both uniformed and civilian, is recognised.

    There will be wide consultation within Defence and also with appropriate external agenices, groups and idividuals. Submissions

    are welcome from all interested parties, particularly from current serving members of the Australian Defence Force.

    Information about the review, including how to provide submissions via a web based form, can be found on the Defence

    Honours & awards website: www.defence.gov.au/medals

    The closing date for submissions is Friday November 16.

    Once completed, the final report will be presented to COSC in February 2008 for it's consideration. The results of the review

    will be promulgated after this time.'
