Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A civil decoration is a decoration awarded to civilians for distinguished service. Military personnel might also be eligible for services of a non-military nature. Purely civilian decorations are relatively few; general purpose orders with a civilian division are more common. There are several forms of civil decorations: Orders of chivalry, usually in several classes, for distinguished services to the government, the community, the society or humanity. One example would be the British Order of St. Michael and St. George; Orders of merit, often in a single class, for distinguished services to the arts, literature or science. Three examples would be the British Order of Merit and Order of the Companions of Honour and the US Presidential Medal of Freedom.show more
