HC Deb 22 December 1964 vol 704 c1049
Q5. Mr. Pounder

asked the Prime Minister whether he will recommend the award of a campaign medal for the military personnel involved in the Aden operations.

The Prime Minister

The award of a General Service Medal in recognition of certain specified operational service is under consideration.

Mr. Pounder

Does the Prime Minister realise that a slight variation in the ribbon design of the ordinary General Service Medal has been agreed for the Borneo and Aden operations? However, the medal to go with the ribbon has not yet been decided. Can the Prime Minister give an assurance that it will not be the ordinary General Service Medal, but will be appropriate to these two campaigns?

The Prime Minister

As I have said, this matter is under consideration and there are certain technical points which have to be discussed with Middle East Command.
