The National Service Act 1939-1960
In 1939 Parliament with great foresight introduced the National Service Act, calling on the men and women of the UK to prepare for National Service, either within an arm of the regular services or as a civilian in one of the many voluntary groups being formed and trained at that time.
With typical British pride the nation rallied to this call and the ranks of both the armed forces and home defence elements swelled until those who fought for peace were backed by over sixteen million men and women registered for non-military National Service. After WWII others where called to National Service and served with pride to carry the flag to the farthest corners of the globe. By December 1960 when the National Service Act was abolished some five million three hundred thousand young people had been conscripted into the forces.
The National Service Medal
Marking National Service between the years 1939 and 1960 this important commemorative medal, originally sponsored by the Royal British Legion, is available only to those who performed National Service, both military and civilian, between January 1939 and December 1960. Next of kin or direct decedents may also apply. The National Service Medals is to be worn with pride not alongside gallantry decorations, but separately and distinctively. The medal exudes a patriotic feel with the Britannia like figure, representing the mother country, and the lion, representing all who performed National Service, being featured on the obverse side.
The medal case will be personalised with your service number, rank, name, initials and regiment or service or any message of your choice up to 50 characters. For an additional charge we can also engrave your service details on the edge of the full-size medal.
