Awards for gallantry are given for acts which include an element of personal risk.
Awards and decorations and their emblems are worn immediately above the right breast pocket or in that position on a blouse, dresses or sweatshirts. The award knot is sewn to the uniform for every day wear and the medal is pinned directly above for ceremonious occasions to cover the knot.
Awards are worn in the order, Gallantry, Meritorious conduct; good service, The Chief scouts Personal Award, then Long service decoration, starting from the middle of the uniform and working outwards. The Cornwell Scout Badge and its emblem are worn above this line of emblems.
The Highest Gallantry Award is the Bronze Cross, then the silver Cross, then the Gilt Cross and then the Chief Scouts Commendation for Gallantry which is given as a knot without medal.
Bars to Gallantry awards can be given for second acts of similar standing.
