0287.0: Colonial Fire Brigades Long Service Medal

Added by: megan
Description: Instituted 23 March 1934 (as the Colonial Police and Fire Brigade Long Service Medal), it was renamed the Colonial Fire Brigades Long Service Medal on 21 March 1956 - although from the outset awards to firefighters had a different reverse from those to police officers. It is awarded for 18 years of full or part time service in a fire brigade in any of the colonies (or more than one colony) with bars added for 25 and 30 years of service. On 14 June 2012 it was renamed to the Overseas Territories Fire Brigades Long Service Medal, the design and terms of award remaining unchanged. Image courtesy of DNW.
