What are the HM Lord-Lieutenant Awards?
HM Lord-Lieutenants are appointed by The Queen to represent her in each county of the United Kingdom. As a result, the honours they present are among the highest any individual can receive.
The awards are given to volunteers and cadets in recognition of their outstanding service and the Lord-Lieutenants made these awards at four ceremonies hosted by the RFCA in each of Yorkshire and the Humber’s four counties.
How do I make a nomination?
The closing date for the 2021 awards has now passed, each entry will be closely assessed ahead of the winners being announced later this year.

What to expect at the awards events
The RFCA hosts the region’s four Lord-Lieutenant Awards ceremonies at a military establishment it manages in each of its county areas.
In 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the events were filmed for the first time so they could be accessible to a wide audience online. The first of the ceremonies to be filmed was Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of South Yorkshire Andrew Coombe’s at Endcliffe Hall, Sheffield.
Videos of the other Lord-Lieutenant Awards ceremonies which took place in North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire, are available on our YouTube channel.
