Recommendation 2:

  • The Commendation for Gallantry should be presented to the family member in possession of the deceased's World War II medals.

  • Should a dispute arise over the application of the Defence policy, then the matter should be referred to the Tribunal for consideration and advice on who should be presented the award.
