I think it's something to do with the tender process, i.e. the manufacture. The design, warrant and clasp criteria (to date) have all been sorted. The design is surprisingly traditional and a departure from recent design trends. It's quite Victorian in overtone.

Tony,

Thank you, but given the amount of info incl DINs which can be found on open source links, I'm sure if site members searched hard enough they'd find all the wanted to know about the new award.  Even your modest representation of the medal ribbon should see you hauled of to the tower..! :)

im sure all shall become clear soon enough...

I see that a company called Empire Medals is advertising miniatures for the GSM 2008.  The five bars are:

Arabian Peninsula, Eastern Africa, Northern Africa, Western Africa and Southern Asia.

I assume this will go along with the previous GSM, whereby one with medal multiple clasps as apposed to the OSM whereby multiple medals awarded, to a single serviceman/women.

Interesting concept but what about such campaigns as Northern Ireland they issued a medal for that? What happens if we don't win in Iraq/Syria will they not issue a medal?

Sorry just being flippant, but it is a strange state of affairs not giving a medal

I agree, considering it's far more higher profile than the other campaign bars issued. I wonder whether it'll have a medal in it's own right perhaps?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
