Awarded to Non-Commissioned officers and men of the army (including the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Division) for individual and associated acts of bravery not of sufficient heroism as to merit the Distinguished Conduct Medal. The reverse of the medal states “For Bravery in the Field”.
The medal was issued named around the rim.
A second award of the MM is noted by a silver bar placed on the medal ribbon.
