Distinguished Service Order (DSO)

Distinguished Service Order (DSO)

The DSO was the second highest decoration for meritorious or distinguished service by officers of the armed forces during wartime, usually in real combat.

The award was normally given only to officers with rank higher than Captain but lower-ranking officers were also decorated - often to acknowledge that they had just missed out on the higher ranking Victoria Cross.

Recipients, officially called "Companions of the Distinguished Service Order" are entitled to use post-nominal letters of "DSO".

A bar is added to the ribbon for each additional award of order (several got 3 bars - i.e. awarded 4 times the DSO).
