National Service Medal
Marking National Service between the years 1939 and 1960 this important commemorative medal is sponsored on behalf of the Royal British Legion.

Available only to those who performed National Service, between January 1939 and December 1960, or their next of kin.

The Britannia like figure, representing the mother country, and the lion, representing all who performed National Service, being featured on the obverse of the medal.

The ribbon has a central gold stripe bound on either side by broad bands of blue representing the involvement of the Royal British Legion. These blue bands are in turn bound by narrow white and red stripes to give a very rich and patriotic ribbon.

The Poppy Appeal is the beneficiary of this project.

The medal is only available from us in miniature.
