Defence civilians who contributed to operations may also be eligible.
    Qualifying Criteria:
    The East Timorese Solidarity Medal was introduced by the President of East Timor in recognition of forces involved in the contribution to stability and peace operations in East Timor.

    Pingat Jasa Malaysia

    In 2004 the Government of Malaysia made an offer to confer a special medal of service to eligible current and former Australian Servicemen and women who served in Malaysia over the period 31 August 1957 to 31 December 1966. As the PJM is a foreign award, the Department of Defence will be acting as an agent for the Malaysian Government. In all possible circumstances, senior representatives from the Malaysian Government will present medals personally to recipients, including the next of kin in cases of posthumous awards. In accordance with Australian privacy regulations, provision is made on the application form for an applicant to elect not to have this information passed on. Arrangements will be made for these to be separately dispatched to the recipient by Australian Defence officials.

    There are two categories of eligibility that will be assessed by the Department of Defence and the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet for eligibility for the Pingat Jasa Malaysia. These are:

    Category One:

    a. Those members of the ADF who were on the posted strength of a unit or formation and served in the prescribed operational area of Malaysia and Singapore, in direct support of operations in Malaysia for 90 days or more, in the aggregate as follows:
    (1) Malaysia during the period 31 Aug 1957 and Dec 1966 incl; or
    (2) Singapore during the period 31 Aug 1957 and 9 Aug 1965 incl.
    Qualifying service between 12 Aug 1966 and 31 Dec 1966 may only apply if a member was posted for operations to Malaysia on or before 12 Aug 1966.
    The prescribed operational area of Malaysia and Singapore is the landmass of East Malaysia (that is: the States of Sabah and Sarawak on the Island of Borneo), the Malay Peninsula and the Island of Singapore extending 12 nautical miles seaward from the coast of these areas.
    b. Those members of the Australian Defence Force who were on the posted strength of a unit or formation outside the prescribed operational area above, but served in a secondary role in indirect support of operations in Malaysia for 180 days or more, in the aggregate, during the period 31 Aug 1957 to 31 Dec 1966 incl.

    Category Two:

    Qualifying service during the period 31 Aug 1957 and 31 Dec 1966 incl, as described in Category One, may be deemed to have been established notwithstanding a member of the ADF has not met the qualifying period described if service was terminated due to death or injury or other disability due to service.


  • There will only be one award of the medal to a person unless otherwise advised. Should the medal be lost or destroyed, it will not be replaced at public expense.
  • Individual applications made to the Malaysian Government for an award of the medal will be referred back to the Australian Department of Defence for an assessment and verification of service.
  • Applications for those Australian citizens who served in a civilian law enforcement capacity will be forwarded to the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet for validation. Once satisfied service has been validated or attested to, the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet will seek the Governor-General’s approval of acceptance and wearing of the award. This medal is also being awarded to British and New Zealand ex-service personnel and their eligibility criteria will likely be different.
  • IMPORTANT: This medal is a die-struck, silver plated, high quality reproduction and supplied with a full 250mm of riband (full size) or 150mm of riband (mini). The riband designed by Malaysia (and woven by Toye, Kenning & Spencer in the UK) is moired and watermarked and is 35mm wide, 3mm wider than standard Australian and British issue full size medal riband (the mini is 20mm, wider than the usual 16mm). Consequently, it is not recommended for swing mounting or riband bars because of the overhang problem. For spare riband lengths in full and miniature sizes, search for PJM on this site.

    WARNING: There are British made replicas on the market that are incorrect – in other words they are approximate copies, not replicas. They are easy to spot on two counts. Firstly they have the palm fronds between the medal itself and suspender back to front, and they have the wrong pattern on the suspender (incorrect number of swirls). We assume these copies were made on first-draft drawings released by Malaysia before the changed, final draft and medal release was made – in an effort to rush them to market. Caveat Emptor. Forewarned is forearmed as our INT friends say.
