Welcome to the Gallantry Medallists’ League

I am very pleased to welcome you to the website of the Gallantry Medallists’ League, the oldest association for gallantry in the UK, having been formed near Manchester during 1931. The League now represents all those individuals who have been decorated at the second and third level and is dedicated to upholding and preserving the proud reputation of all gallantry medallists. The League also seeks to provide friendship, support and comradeship to all medallists of the UK and the Commonwealth, whether members of the League or not.

We actively seek contact with gallantry medal recipients, their families and descendants. If you are eligible and wish to join the League in any category, please apply online using the “Apply for Membership” link at the top of this page and complete the application form. Alternatively, if you know anyone who may be eligible to join, then please ask them to get in touch with us.

If you have any questions about the League or our activities then please get in touch with any of the Committee members listed on the Committee page of this site.
