Regretfully I was unable to give the petition to the Mirror before the campaign was over. However a medal for killed soliders has been accepted by the MOD thankyou for the support
This petition is an appeal by me for residents in the UK and abroad to to aid the Daily Mirror's call for a military medal to be presented to soldiers in the British armed forces who are wounded in combat, or to be presented to the families of those killed in combat.
Such a medal is already in place in many countries including the US (purple heart). Such a medal would be a boost for moral for those currently serving and would, at least in part, say thank you to the brave men and woman who everyday risk themselves and get little in the way of recognition.
(This is a personal petition and I am still awaiting a reply from the Daily Mirror).
We, the undersigned, call on the British Government and the Ministry of Defence to introduce a service medal to be presented to the soldiers injured in combat, and to be presented to the next of kin of those who are killed in, or as a result of, service to the British Government.
The Daily Mirror's Medal For The Brave Campaign petition to General public and the British Government was written by Aaron Thayre and is in the category Military at GoPetition.
