Just a quick question with regard to qualifying criteria. Does regular service count towards the award of the aforementioned medal? For example, TA service 1985 - 1992 immediately followed by regular service until 1996, then a three month gap followed by TA service from May 1996 until March 1998. A total of 13 years made up of 9 years TA and 4 years regular. Gentlemen, your thoughts, please!!
