Mentioned in Dispatches

British commanders-in-chief of a theatre of war or campaign were obliged to report their activities and achievements to the War Office in the form of dispatches, which were published in The Gazette.
In several occasions also persons were mentioned in these dispatches without them having received a decoration for the mentioned action. By adding a specific item to a certified decoration the recipient could show the mentioning.
