Long Service Medal

Significance

The Long Service Medal recognises diligent and long service to the Victorian community. The Award consists of a certificate, lapel badge and medal for 10 years of long service. A clasps is awarded for each further 5 years of service.


History

The Long Service Medal was introduced in 2004 and replaced the Long Service Medallion. This change resulted in the award being worn on the right breast in keeping with medal protocol, whereas the medallion had traditionally been worn on the left which interfered with the wearing of Commonwealth awards. The medal ribbon resembles the British Civil Defence Medal and therefore pays its respects to the origins of VICSES.
