Ebola Medal for Service in West Africa

  • $75.00

The Ebola Medal for Service in West Africa, known simply as the Ebola Medal, is a service medal for issue to the Armed Forces, and to civilians working either for Her Majesty's Government or NGOs in support of the British Government's response to the Ebola crisis that began in 2014. The medal is the first medal awarded by the UK Government for a humanitarian crisis response.

The qualifying period for award of the medal is from 23 March 2014 onwards. The medal is awarded either for 21 days of continuous service within the operating area, or 30 days accumulated service on working visits of 48 hours or more to the operating area. In the event of qualifying service ending prematurely due to death, serious illness, evacuation or disability due to service, where the individual had otherwise been expected to complete their service, the reduced service length will be deemed as qualification for the award.

This full size reproduction medal comes loose and with 8 inches of quality ribbon (32mm wide).

Medal Mounting Services are available at additional cost.
