Award Name (by Precedence Issued For Groups
Parliamentary Medal of Valor The highest gallantry award of the RMN and armed services. This award is for lifesaving
above and beyond the call of duty. To qualify for this award, the recipient must save a life.
Providing a First Aid kit at an accident scene would not qualify. Performing First Aid in a
situation where the recipient would have died without your intervention would qualify. Note
that the situation in which life saving services are rendered need to be life threatening for
the person delivering the services. For this Award to be granted, attestation from Medical
personnel is required. The recipient is entitled to the post nominal letters of ‘PMV’. Because
of the nature of their professions, and the definition of ‘above and beyond’ is difficult at best,
therefore, the award for those personnel in Real World Aid Giving positions will be addressed
on a case by case basis by the Admiralty.
