While I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment and purpose of this national recognition to families of those ADF members who have died whilst on operations, I believe we can do better than using the United Kingdom's. Perhaps a Commonwealth of Australia Cross or Star might be more appropriate.

Michele Jones absolutely agrees that recognition is vital.... Those murderers think they are martyrs but we will recognise their victims as the ones to get respect and honour!!!!!! Great!!!!

Agree as posthumous award to service member but with an Australian name. I did think initially think of the Holt medal as a Prime Minister who died in service but also like the idea of naming it after PM Curtin but for the obvious coincidence but then I'm sure they would appreciate the humour. Lest we Forget.
