"Selfless Heroes Nominated For The Sun’s Military Awards"


War Hero
"The SUN Military Awards are back, celebrating another year of heroics from the finest Armed Forces in the world.

Tonight’s cherished awards – affectionately dubbed The Millies – are returning for their 12th year to salute Our Boys and Girls.

Hundreds of nominations poured in from readers before a shortlist of three was whittled down for each category. The winners – unveiled tonight in London – were picked by a judging panel of ex-military top brass, Forces supporters and celebrities.

On these pages we showcase our nominees across the categories, hailing incredible acts of courage, fortitude and dedication at home and abroad.

BZ to all & some cracking Phot coverage from the Sun. There is a wee 'but' though...

<<...The Prime Minister's dad, Stanley Johnson, was also in attendance proudly showing off his own medals.
He said: "This is a brilliant night - it's so important that we recognise what they do for us and honour them."...>>

Nowt wrong with SJ's turnout, or what he said. Sadly, a Sun's journalistic/editorial faux pas WRT 'own medals'

Worn on his RH side? Convention indicates a forebear's rack so most unlikely to be his own medals. Plus SJ's D of B being 18th August 1940 yet those medals are from WW2 era 1939 to 1945...
