Administrative / biographical background:

The Interdepartmental Committee on Civil Defence gallantry awards, consisting of Home Office and Ministry of Home Security representatives, was responsible for considering all recommendations from local sources and subsequently submitting them with its own recommendations to Lord Chatfield's Committee at the Treasury. This committee was the final arbiter in deciding gallantry awards for the armed forces, Civil Defence, Fire Services, Police and civilians.

The Interdepartmental Committee sat from 1940 until 1949, by which time it was giving consideration to peacetime gallantry awards' recommendations. From 1946 the Committee was known as the Joint Interdepartmental Committee on Gallantry Awards to Civilians.
