  1. Iv got a medal here that iv always considered to be my fathers, but now im not sure, its a malaysia medal with the ingraving of "Pangkuan Negara", is certainly not the Pingat Jasa Malaysia, wasnt that only given in 2004? This is quite old.

    Is it the same as the general service medals he has for places such as northern ireland?

    I would of asked my father but i he died before i found it. He served from 1965 in the Grenadiers, i checked out his book 'once a grenadier' but the only mention of malaysia was from the 40s.

    Thanks.
