Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip Receive Military Long Service Medals
During a special audience with the Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff (People), Lieutenant General Richard Nugee, Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh were presented with Long Service and Good Conduct medals from the British Armed Forces.
The Queen received three medals – Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force – for her role as Commander-in-Chief of the three branches of the Armed Forces, while the Duke received a medal for his 75 years of service to the Royal Navy.
The medal, first awarded back in 1830, recognises “the good conduct of Armed Forces personnel over a 15 year period.”Filed under The United Kingdom
