The Queen's Commendation for Bravery is one of the United Kingdom awards granted for bravery entailing risk to life and meriting national recognition, but not at the level of the Queen's Gallantry Medal. The award may be granted posthumously and is not restricted to British subjects. The award does not give rise to post nominal letters and is denoted by a silver spray of laurel leaves.

The Queen's Commendation for Bravery in the Air is the equivalent award for acts of bravery in the air. It is denoted by silver wings.

If either was awarded during an operation or campaign for which a campaign or other medal was issued, the award is worn on the medal and on the ribbon. When no medal was issued, the award is worn on the uniform or coat on the right breast after all other medals.
