Details

OBVERSE

The medal features a mirror polished background with a dagger and wings representing all Elite and Special Forces. These elements surmount a globe of the world indicative of the international parameter of the medal. The words ‘ALLIED SPECIAL FORCES’ surround the globe.

REVERSE

TThe highly polished reverse also features a glove with lightning bolts demonstrating the speed, force and secrecy with which Special Forces strike. The following words surmount the globe: PER TERRAM (by land), PER MARE (by sea), PER AER (by air) and OBLIQUE (covertly).

RIBBON

The green, sky blue and sea blue stripes represent involvement by land, air and sea with two narrow black stripes through the centre of the ribbon to represent the covert nature of Special Force operations. This medal is supplied on a concealed single pin, ready to wear.

History

History

During the last century, Allied Special Forces have performed operations with unparalleled skill, secrecy and bravery. From daring raids deep into Nazi-occupied Europe to the dangerous manoeuvres into enemy territory during the Gulf War and more recently the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Special Forces around the globe adopt unconventional warfare techniques giving them the capability to provide a viable military option for a variety of operational tasks that are inappropriate or infeasible for conventional forces. Understandably, most operations are to this day shrouded in secrecy with only limited information released to remain within the bounds of many of the Regiments disclosure policies and to ensure that past, present and future operations and international relationships are maintained.
Eligibility

Eligibility

Available to any member of an elite or special force of Britain or that of anyone whose country was an ally of Britain at the time of their service, irrespective of whether the United Kingdom was itself involved in any conflict or operation during their service. The next of kin of such personnel as described above will also be eligible. Due to the very nature of Special or Elite Force operations, we understand that many will be unable to provide detailed service information and as such we ask that only as much information as possible is provided; and fields requesting information considered to be secret or highly confidential should be left blank. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence by our Medals Office and details will not be disclosed to any third parties, under any circumstances.
