SRI LANKA 2 NEW ARMED FORCES MEDALS

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello Gentlemen, 

During my visit to Sri Lanka, it seems I fall the good day, as 2 brand new medals for service in the Armed Forces were release that day.

This medal is said for service, but which kind of services. However it is what it is.

Its name is Seva Bhimani Padakkama. Seva is for service, and last word Padakkama is for medal or award.

Medals are well made, this one : 37 x 46 Millimeters with a weight of 42 Grammes.

Good quality strike for a modern medal.

Regards to all.
