Suppose you’re a civilian and earned a signal honour, like a George Cross or Medal of Honor. Years later, you’re looking for a job. How do you put your medal on your CV without it being immediately binned as ‘an obvious fabrication’? It’s easy enough to check, of course, but will prospective employers bother? And employers, what do / would you do when you get such applications?
Needless to say, this is an entirely theoretical question!
