Latest: Information regarding the PJM Medal

Gentlemen,

Please excuse scatter gun approach, especially if you don’t have the PJM Medal.

I now have confirmation from the MOD Army Medal Office regarding the wearing of this Medal.  Having been formally approved (Nov 11) it can be worn on the left chest with other British awards.  The general rule is that non-British medals should be worn to the left (when worn) of the group, after all British Insignia, Decorations and Medals and in the order of dates on which the foreign medals were conferred.

Branch Secretaries are asked to disseminate as widely as possible.
