History

History

The Hong Kong Medal embraces a period of historical importance to this once far-flung segment of the British Empire. Due to the strategic geographic location enjoyed by the islands of Hong Kong, it has long been of prime importance in the area known for so long as the Far East. Annexed in 1841 by Captain Charles Elliot, RN, it grew to be the world's third largest port and an economic force to be reckoned with by the time British involvement ceased in June 1997. Between the island of Hong Kong and the vast country of China an area of the mainland totalling about 350 square miles was leased to the United Kingdom in 1898 for a 99-year period under the Convention of Peking. This area known at the time of the agreement as 'The Emperor's Rice Bowl', now became known as the New Territories and this land along with the island of Hong Kong and its surrounding 235 islands would be known as The Crown Colony of Hong Kong.  

Throughout this long and often turbulent history the Colony required the constant input of civil servants to oversee the administration and legal aspects of the area. In addition to this ongoing integration of British personnel a sustained presence of armed forces ensured the monitoring of the thousands of miles of coastline and the 22 miles of contiguous land border with China. It is to mark such service both civil and military that the Hong Kong Service Medal was introduced.
