Hey guys. Are service medals e.g. 10-year and 20-year ones, awarded to non-combatant or civilian personnel of the Pakistan Army?

Not quite sure to be honest but it might be possible since the civilian personell serve the army just like the rest

It is certainly the case that the Imperial Indian Army awarded campaign medals to 'followers' of all sorts.  I'm not sure if they also qualified for long service medals but I suspect the answer is yes.  As  so many of the traditions carried on, and as the place of non-combatants in the armed forces of India and Pakistan contiuned to be vital, I would say its a good possibility.

 A 1984 amendment to the rules for the Indian Navy Long Service Medal says that 'with immediate effect' the award of this medal without the RS.100 per annum gratuity is to cease.  I suspect that the award without gratuity may have been for 'followers' or the naval equivalent, but that's just a guess.
