note: after 1999, Police forces is included in civil, not military anymore..

this is just a simple list i taken from gov't regulation on ODM..

additional=

Hi Hugh, thanks for your input..!!

I take this list according to Government Rule no 35 tahun 2010 about revision on ODM

Satyalancana means round shaped medal (well, some of them are oval/edged but whatever:speechless:)

Satyalancana’s degree is below the star and tanda kehormatan (I’ll list them next time,starting tomorrow I have final exams for this semester)

Satyalancana Panja Warsa probably discontinued because there is Jana Utama that has almost same function with it, the differences: Panja Warsa required 5 years service and Jana Utama 8 years.

GOMs are also discontinued, most of their receiver have retired or passed away, but it still being produced now for the replacement.

Satyalancana Perintis Kemerdekaan divided into I and II because there are 2 phases (periods) on Indonesian struggle defending the independency after 17 august 1945 proclamation.

1st period is: 1st Dutch aggression: June 27th 1947-Feb 28th 1948

2nd period is: 2nd Dutch aggression: Dec 18th 1948-Dec 27 1949

Here’s the GOMs:

1. GOM I: for fighting against communist rebellion in Madiun 1948 (well, our soldier at that time fight against Dutch and Communist rebellion in the same time) this rebellion can be defeated after 3 weeks operation.

2. GOM II: for fighting against desertion soldier in Bandung. In 1950, a regiment called APRA under command of Major Raymond Westerling (a Dutch-Celebes descendants), they were were killed some officers and soldiers in Bandung due to some un-clear reason.

3. GOM III: for fighting against rebellion of South Mollucas Republic movement 1950

4. GOM IV: for fighting against DI/TII rebellion in South Sulawesi/Celebes

5. GOM V: for fighting against DI/TII rebellion in West Java 1959-1963

6. GOM VI: for fighting against DI/TII rebellion in Central Java 1960

7. GOM VII: for fighting against DI/TII rebellion in Aceh 1961

8. GOM VIII for fighting against Malaysia-UK forces on Kalimantan (Borneo) 1962

9. GOM IX: for served in West Papua against Dutch 1960’s

Thanks for this, Windu, it's very helpful. What's the translation of Satyalancana? I don't have a dictionary for Bahasa Indonesia, and there was nothing in my Malay dictionary.

Commemorating the overthrow of Bung Sukarno, a bloody period in which many Indonesian Chinese were killed. You may remember the movie "The Year of Living Dangerously" with Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver. Very evocative for me.

One of the early actions in East Timor. If memory serves, Indonesia annexed in 1975, around the time of the Portuguese Revolution. Can anyone refresh my recollection?

Here's the first of two medals commemorating the war for independence against the Dutch (1945 - ?). Does anyone know why there were two separate medals? Seems to me Independence was finally achieved around 1950?

Windu - Break out your history books.

Next the GOM's which Windu refers to, commemorating various campaigns throughout the islands. The first is GOM 1 for Madiun.

Not at all clear what this one is other than 1947. Would love to see some amplification. I got most of these in a little shop in Surabaya when I was working with the Navy (TNI-AL) on torpedoes.

Ops in South Molluca. Many from this community moved to the Netherlands, where they have been a bit of a dissident group, I think.

And here's one for the decades-long (centuries long?) battles with the separatists in Aceh, a region in Sumatra. They fought against the Dutch, then against the central Government in Jakarta. This is the region hit by the tsunami a few years ago, and the fight was still going on then. I think they have since reached some sort of settlement.

This is for ops in Borneo (Kalimantan) in the same general time frame as the British ops in North Borneo (Brunei, etc.). If I remember, Gen. Suharto, who later became President of Indonesia, was involved in this campaign as a young officer in KOPASSUS (Special Forces), and I vaguely remember reading a memoir / history by a British officer who claimed to have had him in his sights at one point.

Others may have better memories / knowledge. I'd welcome inputs.

The preceding have all been Armed Forces (ABRI) medals. Now for a few police medals (just for Merwyn and his ilk). Given his itinerant history, he may well have earned this one!

Whoops, here's another important ABRI medal from the Confrontation period with Malaysia. Sukarno was promoting a union with Malaysia and the Philippines (at least Mindanao and the southern islands, which are primarily Muslim), to be called Mafilindo. As the largest partner, Indonesia would dominated any such union, and Malaysia was not so inclined. At one point, the Indonesians dropped paratroopers into Singapore, which was still a part of Malaysia at that point.

Not sure about any interactions with the Philippines during that period.

Again, I'd be really glad for any amplification / corrections.

OK, back to the coppers.

ID 22 - Satya Lancana Karya Bhakti (25 Years Service, Police), Mint,

I don't see this one in Windu's list. Perhaps it has been discontinued. Mine dates from the '80's.

Hello Gentlemen,here is my contribution to this topic with an old St. Karya Satya 3rd Class. I got it from a fellow in Singapore who himself bought it in Indonesia long time ago.It's an old strike very heavy (24 grammes) and with sharp details.

The class was awarded in connection with the rank of the person who was awarded the medal,in the civil administration.
