This commendable medal group includes the Australian Operational Service Medal Border Protection (AOSM BP), the National Emergency Medal with the Bushfires clasp, and the Australian Defence Medal (ADM), all meticulously court mounted for wear.

The Australian Operational Service Medal Border Protection (AOSM BP) is presented to Australian Defence Force personnel and certain civilians for their involvement in border protection operations. This award emphasises the significant roles individuals play in safeguarding Australia's territorial integrity and maritime borders, often under challenging conditions.

The National Emergency Medal is a singular Australian decoration designed to recognise significant service during specific national emergencies. The Bushfires clasp is affixed to the medal to acknowledge those who have served during severe bushfire events that have profoundly impacted Australian communities. Whether part of organised services or volunteering individually, the recipients of this clasp have made noteworthy contributions to combating these disasters.

The Australian Defence Medal (ADM) is awarded to members of the Australian Defence Force who have completed either an initial enlistment period or four years of service, whichever is shorter. It serves to honour the commitment and enduring contributions of both regular and Reserve members of the ADF.

Taken together, these medals honour a diverse range of service commitments, from participating in border protection and responding to national emergencies like bushfires, to long-term service in the Australian Defence Force. They stand as a lasting tribute to the dedication and sacrifice of our service men and women.

By doing so, the medals are given proper recognition and are displayed in a neat and organized fashion.
