About the LSARS

The Life Saving Awards Research Society was formed in 1987. Its principle objective is to further research into worldwide humanitarian awards given for saving and perpetuating life, or endeavouring so to do. To help achieve this purpose the Society publishes its Journal three times a year.

         Membership of the Society Offers:
 
  • Subscription to the three Journals.
  • Articles of original research into aspects of Life Saving Awards hitherto unpublished.
  • Listings of recipients of awards and citations.
  • Auction reports on Life Saving Awards with prices realised.
  • Correspondence pages enabling members to ask for, and give both advice and information.
During its 21st anniversary year in 2008 the Society appointed its second President.
