General Service Medal GSM-CSM 1962-2007

General Service Medal GSM-CSM 1962-2007 was instituted for award to personnel of all services, and thus did away with the need for separate Army and Navy general service medals. Awards range from a mere 70 for South Vietnam to over 130,000 for service in Northern Ireland. The eligibility for the Northern Ireland clasp ceased at midnight on 31 July 2007—the eligibility period having been from 14 August 1969, almost 38 years, the longest period for any individual clasp. This medal is also commonly known as the Campaign Service Medal 1962 (CSM). 14 clasps have been issued to date; the maximum clasps awarded so far seems to be six. Date: 1962 to 2007 Branch of Service: British Forces. Instituted: 1964 Campaign: Minor campaigns and operations since 1962. Description: (Obverse) a crowned bust of Queen Elizabeth II; (reverse) an oak wreath enclosing a crown and the words FOR CAMPAIGN SERVICE. It has a beaded and curved suspension above which are mounted campaign clasps. Ribbon: Deep purple edged with green. Original Metal: Silver. Size: 36mm.

    I some how had lost mine when I moved. so I got intouch with these guys. I have to be honest and say that I could not be any happier than I am now. They made a great medal and the posting of it was really quick. I would certainly have no hesitation in ordering from then again . thank you very much.

    I gave my original medal to my god daughter on her wedding day a few years ago.
    Then, on last years remembrance Sunday, I felt out of place with all the medals on display.
    So I decided to get a replacement and I’m really glad I did.
    It is beautifully made and I shall be proud to wear it this year.

    I cannot recommend Bigbury mint enough! I wanted to replace my partners medal as a surprise. They helped me to select the correct one, service was amazing and I received it the very next day! I can’t wait to see his reaction. Thank you so much for providing a great and professional service. It is so refreshing to deal with a company that makes buying from them easy and a pleasure.
