HM the Queen recently approved a NDM for the Australians to officially wear for both serving personnel and veterans. Not sure of the criteria but I think it is 2 years service since WW11. A medal was also approved for the Canadians to officially wear, a sort of cold war medal, for serving at least 6 months in BAOR. Why does the Queen approve these medals for Aussi's and Canadians but not for us Brits? Perhaps our Chiefs of Staff did not ask?
