Military honours for 117 servicemen and women

4 October 2013 Last updated at 10:07 BST

More than 100 servicemen and women have been recommended for an award by their commanding officers, for performing beyond the call of duty.

Most of the awards, including eight Military Crosses, were for those who fought in Afghanistan last winter.

The Queen will present the medals at an Investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace later this year.
