Additional information

INFO

The Accumulated Campaign Service Medal was awarded for aggregated service since August 14, 1969 in those theatres of operations where the General Service Medal (GSM) 1962 with clasp was awarded. The GSM has subsequently been replaced by the Operational Service Medal (OSM). The following medals count towards the award: Iraq Medal, GSM 1962–2007 with the clasps for Northern Ireland, Dhofar, Lebanon, Mine Clearance–Gulf of Suez, Gulf, Kuwait, Northern Iraq and Southern Turkey, Air Operations Iraq; the Operational Service Medal awarded since 2000 for Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Further periods of 36 months accumulated campaign service are denoted by a clasp, indicated as a silver rosette when the ribbon alone is worn. A gilt rosette is worn on the ribbon alone to denote the award of four silver clasps. A further gilt rosette was awarded for a further three silver clasps and a third gilt rosette for another two silver clasps. Service on UN, NATO EC or EU missions is not allowed to count towards the qualifying service. This was the first British medal put out to competitive tendering, a contract won by the Royal Mint. As such, the medal is not only silver but hallmarked (believed to be the first medal, although hallmarking is a feature of certain decorations and orders). In July 2011 the medal was superceded by the Accumulated Campaign Service Medal 2011.
