Mentioned in Dispatches (MID)

Mentioned in Despatches (MID) is a military award for gallantry or otherwise commendable service. A despatch is an official report from a senior commander, usually of an army, to his superiors, detailing the conduct of military operations. In the British Armed Forces, this report is published in the London Gazette. If a subordinate officer or soldier performs a noteworthy action included in the report, he/she is said to have been "mentioned in despatches".
