In association with Award, the Aden Veterans Association is proud to announce the striking of the Commemorative Arabian Service Medal available to all former civil and military personnel who served in the former British Colony, their next of kin or direct descendants.
British Colony Service
The medal has been carefully designed to honour both military and civilian personnel who served or worked in any of the Arab States to be worn with pride not alongside gallantry decorations, but separately and distinctively. Available to all former civil and military personnel who served in the former British Colony, their next of kin or direct descendants.
In addition, eligibility is extended to include recipients of the General Service Medal with Arabian Peninsula, South Arabia, Radfan and Dhofar clasps, as an additional commemorative to mark their Arabian service.
The ribbon has three equal stripes of blue, representing the sea and sky, yellow, representing sand and green for the Aden Protectorate Levies and the Federal Regular Army. Green also is the colour which appears in most Arabian National flags. The distinctive woven ribbon is fitted to a uniquely designed suspender, which is connected to the medal by the crescent and star.
