First Sandhurst Medals presented with King Charles III cypher

18 Dec 2023
Academy News

On Wednesday 13th December, 24 international cadets from CC231 received their Sandhurst medals from the Commandant, Major General Zac Stenning OBE.




This intake was the first to receive medals bearing the cypher of King Charles III. Countries represented included Fiji, Hungary, Malta, Paraguay, Slovenia and the first ever cadet from Cambodia.


Afterwards the Commandant addressed the cadets as a group before they all headed off for their Commissioning Dinner.

The Sandhurst Medal was introduced in 2016 to recognise the extraordinary achievement of those International Cadets who successfully complete the Regular Commissioning Course at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS). The recipients of the Sandhurst Medal join an esteemed list of over 5,400 International Alumni from over 129 different countries.

In 2022, the Sandhurst Medal was extended to include those International Cadets, successfully completing the Commissioning Course Short (CCS).

Each year over 120 medals are awarded by the Commandant to International Cadets on each course.

Sandhurst Alumni

The Sandhurst Medal is fully approved by the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence and is designed to be worn on the uniform of the international recipient to show that they have successfully completed the Regular Commissioning Course or Commissioning Course Short course at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, United Kingdom.

Alumni who commissioned before 2016 are able to purchase the Sandhurst Medal exclusively from the Sandhurst Trust. Find out more here.
