Medals can normally only be worn by the person to whom they were awarded, and then on the left breast. On Remembrance Day, and only on that day, a relative may wear the medals of a dead relative on the right breast only. The wearing of the medals on November 11 on the right breast tells all who look at the person wearing them that they are not that person's but those of a deceased relative. If the wearing relative has medals of there own issue then they wear their own medals on their left breast and their relatives medals on their right breast, as normal.

Wearing the medals of a relative on any other day than Remembrance Day, or upon the left breast during that day, is a criminal offence.
