Rhodesia Medal

$24.55 GST added at checkout

This Medal was awarded to people in the armed services, the police and to civilians of the small multi-national force on Operation Agila. The role of the multi-national force was to keep peace between 22000 guerrillas and the Rhodesian forces during the cease-fire run-up to the 1980 elections. The Medal was initiated by the British government in consultation with the governments of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Kenya whose forces took part. Each government treats the Medal as part of its own honours system. The Medal is issued for service during the period 1 December 1979 and 20 March 1980. Fourteen days’ service in Rhodesia is the basic qualification period for the Medal. Approximately 2500 medals were issued and recipients of the Medal also received the Zimbabwe Independence Medal. The obverse of the Medal features the crowned effigy of The Queen and the reverse depicts a sable antelope surrounded by the inscription “THE RHODESIA MEDAL 1980”. The ribbon is sky-blue with three central stripes of red, white and blue.

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.
