Hilal-i-Jurat (Crescent of Courage) is the second highest military award of Pakistan. It was established in 1957 after Pakistan became a Republic, however, it was instituted retrospectively back to 1947. Only officers serving in the Pakistani armed forces are eligible for the award and it is conferred for acts of valour, courage or devotion to duty. It is considered to be roughly equivalent to the Distinguished Service Order under the British honours system and the United States Distinguished Service Cross.
