Description

The St John Service Medal is an award bestowed by St John Ambulance, an international humanitarian organisation, to recognise the meritorious service of its members. In Australia, this medal is awarded to those who have dedicated themselves to the principles and work of St John Ambulance, serving their community with distinction in the provision of first aid and medical support services.

Eligibility

The St John Service Medal is granted to individuals who have shown sustained and diligent service, typically for a period that may be specified by the particular St John organisation within Australia (such as a minimum of 12 years of service). Nominees for the medal must have demonstrated a high level of dedication and commitment to the organisation, going beyond the normal expectations of volunteer or professional duty within St John Ambulance.

Design

The medal usually features the emblem of the Order of St John, which includes the eight-pointed Maltese cross. The design elements and ribbon colours can vary depending on the country and the specific criteria set by the national St John organisation. In some instances, the ribbon may incorporate black and white, representing the traditional colours of the Order of St John.

The award of the St John Service Medal is not only an individual recognition but also signifies the value of community service and the humanitarian ethos that underpin the work of St John Ambulance. Recipients of the medal are recognised for their steadfast contribution to the organisation's mission of saving lives and providing essential care to those in need, reflecting the spirit of volunteerism and charity that is central to the ethos of St John.

Unmounted Medals

If you order your medal unmounted, the medal and ribbon will be supplied as separate components. Miniature medals will be supplied with 15cm of ribbon and full size medals will be supplied with 30cm of ribbon.

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