Edited to hopefully make better sense. I couldn't find a thread that solved a discussion we were having today and hope someone can help, the three statements below cover the 3 stances people took on qualifying for the OSM Afghanistan with clasp. 1. To qualify for the OSM wih clasp you have to serve 30 days continuous within Afghanistan (for a period last year), this includes Helmand, kabul and Kandahar. The Din seems to support this. 2. To qualify for the OSM and clasp it is service in Helmand only, as it's meant to signify service in a more dangerous area within our main effort. 3. for the OSM with clasp it is service in zone 1 (not sure what zone 1 covers) The discussion came about as one the lads just did 4 months in Kabul and after people winding him up about the clasp. In the end no one could decide which of the 3 it was, hopefully someone can shed some light if the osm WITH clasp is awarded for Kabul. thanks in advance.
