The Distinguished Conduct Medal, (oldest British Award for Gallantry), was established on 4 December 1854 by Queen Victoria, during the Crimean War, as a decoration for gallantry in the field to Warrant Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and men for "distinguished, gallant and good conduct in the field". For all ranks below commissioned officers, it was the second highest award for gallantry in action after the Victoria Cross.
