British Empire Medal

The British Empire Medal (BEM) is a British medal awarded for meritorious civil or military service worthy of recognition by the Crown.It was established in 1922 to replace the Medal of the Order of the British Empire. Recipients are entitled to use the post-nominal letters “BEM” and it is divided into civil and military medals in a similar way to the Ordedr of the Britsh Empire itself. While recipients are not technically counted as members of the Order, these medals are nevertheless affiliated with it. The BEM was awarded to subjects of the United Kingdom until 1993, after which time it lay in abeyance in the United Kingdom, although was still awarded in some Commonwealth realms. It was brought out of abeyance in June 2012, for the Queens Diamond Jubilee.
