HONOURS AND AWARDS (Code 85)
The subjects covered by this Code include: appreciations and praise, letters of approbation, order of Knighthood etc. and decorations, gallantry and distinguished conduct medals, war, polar, special event, long service and good conduct medals, British awards to foreigners, Commonwealth, foreign and society honours and awards, monetary gifts and prizes, presentations of any other nature, appointments, Aides-de-Camp, appointments to the Royal Household, Vice-Admiral of the United Kingdom etc.
The following 'stray' piece registered outside the core period of 1938-45 has been allocated this code number: ADM 1/10089 (1936).
Note that many pieces have been allocated more than one Code, and therefore maybe described under a different Code (e.g. ADM 1/15751 has been allocated the Codes 5, 21 and 54, but is only listed in the on-line catalogue under Code 5). This is much more likely to be the case with the later Code numbers. To view all pieces under a specific Code, readers should do a 'key-word' search on the online catalogue entering the relevant Code number (in this case 85) in the 1st box, the relevant date(s) in the 2nd two boxes and restricting the search to ADM 1 in the 3rd box.
