British Nuclear Weapons Tests Commemorative Medal available to all Nuclear Tests Veterans, military or civilian, who served in nuclear test site locations in Australia and the Pacific and supporting bases in Australia between 1952-1967 including personnel involved in the clean up operations.

This important medal, to be worn with pride not alongside gallantry decorations, but separately and distinctively, is a joint commission between the Australian and British Nuclear Veterans Associations providing medallic recognition to veterans who served in nuclear test site locations and supporting bases in Australia and the Pacific between 1952 and 1967.

The British Nuclear Weapons Test Programme began on the 3rd October 1952 with Operation Hurricane aboard HMS Plym in Main Bay, one of the Monte Bello Islands in Australia and it continued for a further fifteen years elsewhere in Australia, over Malden & Christmas Island in the Pacific ending with Operation Brumby, the clean up operations in 1967.

The medal is a befitting way to pay tribute to the thousands of British and Commonwealth military and civilian personnel who served their countries, often exposed to the unknown dangers of radiation with little or nothing to protect them, and is certain to become a cherished family heirloom.

Eligibility
Available to all Nuclear Tests Veterans, military or civilian, who served in nuclear test site locations in Australia and the Pacific and supporting bases in Australia between 1952-1967 including personnel involved in the clean up operations, handling of stores and equipment returned from a test site. Next of kin and direct descendants can also apply. The application form (attached) must be completed and signed. This form may be certified by the organisation holding a record of the applicant's service or by copies of service records.

Should there be any question of an applicant's eligibility, the matter will be referred to a scrutineering committee set up by the ANVA and BNTVA, whose decision will be final. Award Productions Ltd., international medallists and medallists to the Royal British Legion, has been invited to sponsor and produce this distinctive and befitting tribute to be worn with pride, not alongside campaign medals or gallantry decorations, but separately and distinctively.

The Medal
On a highly polished background the obverse depicts the nuclear symbol surrounded by the words 'British Nuclear Weapons Tests in Australia & Pacific.' Again on a highly polished background, the reverse of the medal dramatically features a detonation cloud surrounded by the words 'For Service in Radioactive Areas 1952-1967.' The ribbon is white on the edges representing the blinding white flash that comes before the fireball and then subsides to the fireball which has the reddish fire in the centre and becomes the familiar mushroom shape.

Please note that the full-size medal is only available by completing the application form below. After you have completed all of the fields and added any additional products please click on the 'Add to Basket' button to continue with your order.
