AFGHANISTAN Operational Service Medal with Clasp
This is an exquisite replica of the Afghanistan Operational Service Medal and is ideal for the collector or as a replacement.
The medal is awarded to men and women who have served either 5, 21 or 30 days continuous service in Afghanistan. For anyone involved in Ops Jacana or Bandog this service must have taken place between 11th September, 2001, and 1st August, 2002, with dates to be decided for Operations Veritas, Fingal and Landman.
The medal features the Operational Service Medal design of the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on the front and the union jack upon the compass star on the reverse. The reverse also features the four crowns, representing the Royalty (top left), Navy (top right), Army (bottom left) and Air Force (bottom right). It also comes with the correct ribbon in the colours of the three services, bordered by the light brown added to represent the landscape of Afghanistan. The ribbon and clasp are used to distinguish this medal from the other OSMs for Sierra Leoneand the Democratic Republic of Congo.
These are stunning new productions and the only difference form the originals is that these have a discreet 'copy' written on the reverse side of the medal, which can clearly be seen in the pictures.
These medals are made in Great Britain by one of the finest and oldest medal and military accoutrement manufacturers in the country (UK Medal Office Approved), so you know that in terms of quality these cannot be beaten.
To clarify, these medals are MoD approved reproductions of the genuine issue medals and can be issued without reservation or application. The original genuine medals can only be issued through application to the MoD/ UK government.
