The 2018 Military New Year Honours once again recognises the valuable service of individuals within the Armed Forces. This year 108 service personnel have been granted honours by Her Majesty the Queen in her annual New Year Honours list.
We’re very proud to support all of the UK Armed forces and those who support them, be that family or civilian contractors to the MoD – of whom 44 were also honoured for their work with the Military by Her Majesty the Queen in the New Year Honours list.
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said of this year’s honours: “Our Armed Forces are the best in the world, and the men and women receiving honours today have gone above and beyond the call of duty in order to keep this country safe. Their diligence and dedication in the line of service has been unwavering and ensured that Britain remains ready as we face intensifying threats at home and abroad.”
