Medals For Heroes Campaign To Posthumously Honour Police

IT is absolutely right that officers who have been killed on duty should be posthumously honoured with a medal of honour, according to Hampshire Police Federation.

A campaign for a new medal for fallen officers, called the Elizabeth Medal, has been launched by Bryn Hughes and Paul Bone – fathers of GMP officers PC Nicola Hughes and PC Fiona Bone, who were killed on duty after they attended a call-out to a hoax burglary.

And Hampshire Police Federation is putting its full support behind the Medals for Heroes campaign.

Chair ZoeWakefield said: “I’ve had the honour of having several chats with Bryn Hughes about this and he’s an amazing man who’s making a real difference for, not just Nicola and Fiona, but for so many other officers. [Thames Valley Police officer] Andrew Harper, for one, who’s obviously local to us.

“So I think it’s amazing actually that we haven’t had it before, because the military have all sorts of medals. We’ve never had this. So we are 100%, fully supportive.”
