Hong Kong Service Miniature Medal
Hong Kong Service Miniature Medal

The Hong Kong Service Commemorative Medal marks the service of British civil and military personnel, throughout a long and often turbulent history of the Colony. Civil Servants were required to oversee the administration and legal aspects of the area and 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.
