Legion of Honour

An Earth Empire medal for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity involving risk of life above and beyond the call of duty in action with the enemy. Comes in the following classes (which must be earned in order)

  • Legionnaire
  • Knight - with crossed swords
  • Officer - with oak leaves - receiver will be commissioned
  • Commander - with swords & oak leaves
  • Knight Commander - with diamonds, swords & oak leaves

There is a limit on the number of members of the Legion of Honour currently alive to 65,536 all grades.

Satirised as the "Leg-iron of Honour" by some scurrilous and disrespectful media types.
