Issue of the Humanitarian Medal to those personnel on Operation Polar Bear.

The request was successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

With the notification of the Humanitarian Medal not being back dated the usual 5 years, as most medals are, and the time at which the creation of the medal was announced, please can you tell me if personnel who deployed as part of the UK’s efforts in the multinational operation to help people evacuate from Sudan in 2023, Operation Polar Bear, will be considered for the issue of this medal?

Yours faithfully,
D Crawshaw, Ministry of Defence
