Description

The Territorial Efficiency Medal is a notable British military decoration that recognizes long and efficient service in the Territorial Army (now known as the Army Reserve). Instituted in 1908, this medal commemorates the dedication and commitment of reserve forces in the United Kingdom.

Eligibility for the Territorial Efficiency Medal requires the following:

  • Long and efficient service as a member of the Territorial Army or its successor organizations.
  • Demonstrated commitment and loyalty to the reserve forces, exemplifying the values of the Territorial Army.

The medal, with a diameter of 36 millimeters, is crafted from silver. The obverse features the effigy of the reigning monarch at the time of award, surrounded by the monarch's name and title. The reverse bears the inscription "TERRITORIAL EFFICIENCY" encircled by a wreath of oak leaves, representing strength and endurance.

The accompanying ribbon, 32 millimeters wide, consists of alternating stripes of dark green and light green, symbolizing the connection to the British Army and the natural environment.

Recipients of the Territorial Efficiency Medal hold a distinguished recognition of their long and meritorious service in the Territorial Army or its successor organizations. This award serves as a testament to their unwavering commitment and invaluable contributions to the reserve forces of the United Kingdom.

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