About Howard Vincent Burnhill

  • First Name: H V
  • Surname: Burnhill
  • Rank: Company Quartermaster Serjeant
  • Service Number: 20151
  • Gallantry Awards:
  • Military Medal

This Level 3 Gallantry Medal was established during the First World War on the 25th March 1916 and introduced in the London Gazette issue 29535, (back dated to 1914) to personnel of the British Army and other services, and personnel of Commonwealth countries, below commissioned rank. It was the other ranks' equivalent to the Military Cross (M.C.), (which was awarded to Commissioned Officers and, rarely, to Warrant Officers, who could also be awarded the M.M.).

The military decoration was awarded to H V Burnhill for acts of gallantry and devotion to duty under fire or for individual or associated acts of bravery which were insufficient to merit the Distinguished Conduct Medal.

Conferment of the medal was announced in the London Gazette and H V Burnhill earned the right to add the letters M.M. to his name.

  • Gazette Info: Gazette issue no 29827 M.M. - His Majesty the King has been graciously pleased to award the Military Medal for bravery in the field to the undermentioned Non-Commissioned Officers and Men.
