Pingat Jasa Malaysia Medal

I've just realised that the above medal is the General Service Malay Medal issued by the MOD, not Malaysia as it is today!!
It seems that when I applied for the Pingat Jasa Malaysia medal the MOD realised that I hadn't yet received my GSM so made it up and sent it.
Still waiting for the one from KL!

You will not get both I'm afraid. Since you discovered you were eligible for the UK joint services GSM that was the principal Campaign Medal. The Malaysian Government offered theirs to those who just missed out on the British one. It's either, not both.

Ah, OK. Thanks for that. :confused: I have to wonder why the MOD processed my application for the other one, knowing that they were issuing the GSM???

Perhaps we can assume the Admiralty that looked after us then was rather more efficient than the MOD that looks after them--and us, sadly ,through Veterans uk or whatever they're calling themselves today.
