    Operational Service Medal

    Recommended Posts

    Saw an operational service medal on TV a short while ago. 

    Curious as to why the chaps regimental number is at the end? Is this common practice for OSM’s?


    My two named medals GSM & Iraq both have my regimental number first.

    JSP 761, Vers4.0 dated December 2014 standardised the naming convention of U.K. medals to


    Rank, Intitials, Surname, (post nominals if any) then either

    RN, RM, Regiment, RAF

    then Service Number.


    so it would appear that  any medals awarded after 2014 would have the number last.
