A new award for the families of British KIA:

The families of thousands of Armed Forces personnel who have been killed on operations or died as a result of a terrorist attack since the Second World War are to receive a new military award.

Around 8,000 families will be eligible for a special silver Elizabeth Cross emblem and a memorial scroll signed by the Queen.

Excellent idea I think.

Doesn't compensate for the loss but at least it is some recognition.
