The rank of Warrant Officer is only achieved by those who possess outstanding ability and personal qualities. It is these qualities which are recognised by the issue of a Royal Warrant.

Commendations
Commendations are awarded to personnel who have demonstrated consistently high standards of efficiency and devotion to duty, over and above that normally expected of them. Commendations are awarded sparingly and only in exceptional circumstances.

The Clasp to the Long Service & Good Conduct Medal
