About the above gallantry Medals

Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) was awarded to non-commissioned officers for bravery

Distinguished Service Order (DSO) was generally awarded to officers ranked Major and higher for distinguished war service

Mentioned in Despatches (MID). “Mentioned in Despatches” was an award for commendable service or bravery. Despatches were official reports that detailed military operations. These reports were published in the London Gazette. Servicemen who had performed noteworthy actions were often mentioned in these reports, therefore having been
“Mentioned in Despatches.”

Brevet Commissions

In the United Kingdom the brevet commission was only by courtesy. Officially, both titles were used, as: "Major and Brevet Lieutenant Colonel Cornwallis" Originally the term designated a promotion given on such occasions as a coronation, or the termination of a great war, and had its origin during the reign of James II (1685-88); but it was abused so frequently and used to such an extent by the general award of brevet commissions, that in 1854, during and after the Crimean War, its bestowal was limited strictly to cases of very distinguished service in the field and on the principle of seniority. In the United Kingdom, brevet commissions were confined to ranks from captain to lieutenant-colonel.
