DISTINGUISHED SERVICE MEDAL

GVI ( WW2) or EIIR

Please advise which version you require

A MINT CONDITION FULL SIZE REPLACEMENT/COPY MEDAL WITH RIBBON

Awarded to petty officers and ratings of the Royal Navy, NCOs and other ranks of the Royal Marines and all other persons holding corresponding ranks or positions in the naval forces, for acts of bravery in face of the enemy not sufficiently meritorious to make them eligible for the Conspicuous Gallantry Medal.

It was later extended to cover the Merchant Navy and Army, the WRNS and RAF personnel serving aboard ships in WW2.

As a result of the 1993 Review of gallantry awards it has been replaced by the DSC which is now available to officers and other ranks.
