Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. Just wandering if anyone can help.
    I am serving in NI at the moment (3rd time round again!) by the time I leave I will have done approx 2yrs 9mths in Province, just short of the 1080 days needed for the ACSM. I will no doubt find myself warm and sunny for 6 months in the very near future. Now, will I then be elligble for the ACSM, and is it the same one as the one you get for time in NI? will I also be issued the relevant medal for that particular theatre?
    Many thanks to you all for your time,

    Wee man.
  2. I'm not an expert, but I believe that the ACSM covers all theatres, so futre optours should add to qualification. Out of interest do they still issue the GSM with NI clasp?

    Yeah they do, 28 days. However I do believe that will come to an end when OP BANNER officially ends next year, as will the other perks for serving out here.

    Wee Man
  4. The ACSm covers all medals issued by the British Gov for tours, so NATO and UN don't count

    The rule of thumb is,if it has your name inscribed on it it counts
