Marine Detachments and Regiments:

Commanding Officers of MARDETs and Regiments shall have the same promotion and awards authority as Royal Navy Chapter Commanding Officers.

Expeditionary Force and Corps:

Commanding Officers of these echelons shall have the same promotion and awards authority as Royal Navy Fleet Commanding Officers.

Marine Forces Command and Headquarters RMMC:

The Marshal of the Corps, Deputy Marshal of the Corps, COMFORCECOM, and Deputy COMFORCECOM retain supreme promotion and awards authority within the RMMC and can promote and confer awards to any member of the RMMC up to the limits as dictated by the various Admiralty Orders, Corps Directives, and awards manuals.

Approved awards will be sent from the Awards Department to the RMMC Awards Coordinator, who in turn will send them to the appropriate echelon or MARDET Commander to award. When awarding, please use the following system for generating an order number.

Unit name – last 2 digits of the current year – the 2 digit for the current month – a letter for the number of awards issued for the month – Reason for award. An order number allows for improves tracking of awards issued to the individual Marine and to prevent duplication.
