If the HD Committee's usual practice is not to recommend acceptance of foreign medals then why the London Gazette of 1968 stating that the Queen has been graciously pleased to approve that Orders, Decorations and Medals conferred with Her Majesty's permission upon United Kingdom citizens, not being servants of the Crown, by the Heads or Governments of Commonwealth countries, as defined above, or of foreign states, may in all cases be worn by the recipients without restriction.
If, as you say, it is the HD Committee's usual practice to not recommend acceptance of foreign medals then you are over-ruling a Royal Decree which has been duly published in the London Gazette.
You also are using the usual bluff by quoting medals issued to servants of the Crown, or serving forces personnel, when you know full well that the PJM deals with British citizens who are civilians and not members of the Crown. If you do not believe me ask the MOD and the HD Committee as they have published facts to confirm this.
