Eligibility for the medal is limited to those who have served, or are serving, in the Merchant Navy or Fishing Fleets of the United Kingdom, Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and the British overseas territories and have shown devotion to duty and exemplary service, which has been of particular value and has constituted an outstanding example to others.
