Application for the medal is open to all veterans who served in the Canal Zone from 1945 until 1957 or their next of kin. This commemorative medal marks the service of participants and support personnel in the Suez Canal Zone to be worn with pride not alongside gallantry decorations, but separately and distinctively.
On the medal are two sets of dates - 1951/1954 and 1956/1957 - representing the two most recent periods of unrest and conflict. However, applicants are not restricted to these dates as the medal commemorates service in the Canal Zone.
The ribbon represents the involvement of the British and French Forces bordering the sand of the desert and in the centre the canal itself.
