Commendation for Brave Conduct

Commendation for Brave Conduct

The Commendation for Brave Conduct is conferred for an act of bravery that is worthy of recognition.

It is the fourth highest Australian Bravery Decoration.

About the award

The Australian Bravery Decorations date from the establishment of the Australian honours system in February 1975. The Group Bravery Citation was added in 1990.

The decorations recognise acts of bravery by members of the community. They selflessly put themselves in jeopardy to protect the lives or property of others.

Insignia design

The Commendation for Brave Conduct is a silver gilt sprig of mimosa mounted on a blood-red backing ribbon.
