Just reading some news which explains the new qualifying rules fo the Long Service & Good Conduct Medal. All commissioned officers will be included in the qualifying period of 15 years and get this, it is now only 10 years for a bar to this medal. Just think, we might see senior fellas with LS & GC plus TWO BARS. So 25 years gives you the medal plus bar as opposed to the old rule when I was serving of 36 years !!! (18 plus 18)
Any comments chaps

Thank you for this info, not seen it before, looks as if we Brits are moving in the direction of the Canadian style Defence Medal.

Unable to claim the award retrospectively so unable to invite my friends to join me at the Bar to celebrate (I would have qualified for two awards.) Incidentaly l wonder how many Regular officers will qualify, relatively few appear to complete 15 years service these days

Hi JPW and others, Here is the full script :-

The Long Service and Good Conduct (LSGC) Medal for the Royal Navy is awarded to personnel in recognition of long service. The regulations were updated on 1 October 2016.

To qualify, you must have:
•15 years’ reckonable service in the Navy
•a clear record with no misconduct for at least the last 15 years
•been serving on or after 29 July 2014, if you’re an officer
•been serving on or after 1 October 2016, if you’re an ‘other rank’
•have all 3 conduct badges with character judged no lower than ‘very good’

You don’t need to apply if you’re currently serving. The MOD medals office is currently processing applications. Talk to your unit HR or go to 2016DIN09-023 or JSP 761 for more information.

If you have a disciplinary entry on your record, you will need to wait 15 years from the date of your last offence before you will be eligible again. You should apply through your unit HR.

If you have been discharged and are eligible you should apply to the MOD Medal Office.

For every additional 10 years’ service with a clear record you’ll be issued a clasp. For example, if you qualify and have served 26 years you will receive the medal and clasp.

Regards

There is a very similar statement on the mod army website.

Ouote"Thank you for this info, not seen it before, looks as if we Brits are moving in the direction of the Canadian style Defence Medal." End quote

You're on the right track J.P., but it's the C.D. or Canadian Decoration for 12 years of undiscovered crime. Or the RCAF medal as we use to call it, as that seemed to be all they sported.

10 more years gives you a bar. So it's not unusual to see two bars on it. My self 1 bar (best medals parade I was on, I got it in the mail with apologies). At one time it had to be applied for, now chucked out by computer and presented on parade. I well remember getting mine in Germany. The S.S.M. had a pile of them on this desk as the computer age was kicking in. So many of them, that we all went into a class room the C.O. gave a nice speech about what a grand lot we were, pick your medal on the way out and ensure it was your S.I.N. engraved on the edge, another good medals parade. I heard of one Van Doo at the air base getting his bar on parade and telling his C.O. he couldn't accept it as he hadn't had the medal yet.

My father in-law was given his on retirement. He said he didn't want it. The C.O. pointed out he was on 7 months re-hab leave in London Ontario where the R.C.R. base was and he'd be ordered on parade there for it, when it came in. He took it, on a little presentation ceremony in the C.O.'s office.

Gotta love military thinking.
