The Regimental Medal

In 1909, Lt Col ED Browne-Synge-Hutchinson VC, Commanding 14th (King’s) Hussars, re-instituted The 14th King’s Hussars Regimental Medal, the old 14th Light Dragoons Regimental Medal having fallen into abeyance.  In 1946, Lt Col HAR Tilney OBE instituted a separate award, a bar to the medal.  At the time of the amalgamation 176 medals had been awarded, and 13 bars.

The medal is awarded to any officer, warrant officer, non-commissioned officer or soldier serving in the Regiment who has contributed to the military efficiency or military honour of the Regiment.  It is laid down that length of service or attainment of a certain rank not, in itself, be counted as a sufficient qualification.  

A bar to the medal is awarded to those who would again have earned a medal in a different sphere of Regimental life.  Since 1960, attached personnel have also been eligible for the award.  A committee consisting of the Commanding Officer, the Second-in-Command, the Squadron Leaders and the Adjutant decide upon the award of the Medal.

The 14th/20th King’s Hussars Regimental Medal has been carried forward unchanged to The King’s Royal Hussars, who remain one of only two regiments in the British Army today to award a Regimental Medal.

Below are the names of those that served in either the 14th (King’s) Hussars and the 14th/20th King’s Hussars to have been awarded the Regimental Medal.
