DetailsMedal Presentation Set featuring Arabian Service of War full-size and miniature Commemorative medals, matching ribbon brooch bar and case.
This important medal embraces a period of historical importance to the former British Crown Colony. Although may service and civilian personnel performed sterling service in often terrible conditions and were at risk of death or injury during the years of conflict, many did not qualify for the official medals issued.
The medal is a befitting way to pay tribute to the thousands of former civil and military personnel who served in the Arabian territories from 1839 to 1967, when the British withdrew from Aden, thereby ending the British Army’s last colonial counter-insurgency campaign.
The medal is available to all former civil and military personnel who served in the former British Crown 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 merit their Arabian service.
