Riband of a Knight/Lady of the Gadus

The John Cross is the highest and most prestigious award of the Baustralian honours system. It is awarded for gallantry "in the presence of the enemy" to members of the Baustralian Armed Forces. It may be awarded posthumously.


The member, upon appointing, may wear a four-inch (10.16 cm)-wide sash worn over their left shoulder to their right hip. The arms of the Order may be worn on this sash on the left breast, unless in military uniform with medals. Also, a breast star may be worn with the sash.
