The Government is considering whether troops deployed on the Afghanistan evacuation mission qualify for medals relating to the operation.
The mission consisted of two weeks, with Boris Johnson praising "around-the-clock" efforts from troops, but deployments must normally last 30 days to qualify for service medal recognition.
An MOD spokesperson said: "Medallic recognition for the evacuation in Afghanistan will be considered in due course. The current qualifying length of service is 30 days and any decision to change that will take lengthy consideration.
"Medals or awards for individual acts of bravery or leadership are separate to the length of deployment criteria and are therefore considered based on a citation by citation basis."
Experts anticipate some personnel from 2 PARA will require psychological therapy following Operation Pitting, which saw an explosion near Kabul airport a few days before the final withdrawal.
