  • Medical aid organisations like the Red Cross Aides, Voluntary Aide Detachments.
  • Allied Works Council and other civil construction organisations and units.
  • The North Australia Railway and other organisations for service in the Darwin area.We don’t ‘nickel and dime’ you by supplying scant, unusable riband lengths, or worse, making riband a hidden-in-the-fine-print optional extra – every medal comes with 250mm of riband (full size) and 150mm (miniature). Ample for a complete professional court mount.

The Civilian Service Medal 1939-1945 was established on 28 October 1994.
