Armed Forces: Medals

Volume 718: debated on Monday 29 March 2010


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what consideration they have given to adding a bar to service medals to recognise repeated tours of duty in an area of conflict for which a medal is awarded. [HL2986]

The accumulated campaign service medal was instituted for aggregated service and repeat tours of duty for those locations anywhere where a campaign medal is awarded.

We believe this is the most appropriate way to recognise repeat tours of duty, and so there are no plans to consider adding a bar to service medals.
