The 'Medal of the Order of the British Empire' was instituted in 1917 on the formation of the Order of the British Empire, to serve as a lower award granting recipients affiliation to the Order but not membership of it. In 1922, that medal separated from the Order and was renamed the 'British Empire Medal' (BEM). It is awarded for meritorious civil or military service worthy of recognition by the Crown.
