To be worn with pride by all those heroes who served, their next of kin or direct descendants.
The obverse of the medal, with all its fine detail frosted on a mirror polished background, has the dove of peace rising in flight from the letter ‘V’ for victory and the date 2020, carrying in its beak a palm branch which is the symbol of victory and peace. Surrounding the design is the wording 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE DECLARATION OF PEACE.
Obverse (left) and reverse (right) of the new Victory & Peace Medal
The medal reverse features the iconic design of the Restoration of Peace Medal issued to mark the 50th Anniversary and has the world globe as its centre. The globe depicts the African, European and Pacific landmasses with the letter ‘V’ for victory and the date 1945. The words A TIME FOR PEACE surround the side.
The Ribbon & Suspender Bar
The outer bands of red and blue represent the services, Merchant Navy and the involvement of SSAFA whilst the two diamond white bands reflect the 75th anniversary of victory and peace. The theme of the Restoration of Peace Medal is continued with the two centre bands of rich claret representing life separated by a band of gold for the dawn of a new day.
The ribbon is fitted to the same suspender with its unusual feature of the dove of peace rising in flight and carrying in its beak a palm branch. The medal is supplied on a concealed single pin, ready to wear with pride, not alongside campaign medals or gallantry decorations, but separately and distinctively.
Featuring an engraved full-size and miniature Medal and matching Ribbon Bar elegantly displayed in an attractive case personalised with service details.
