For your information only - I do not know how accurate the supplied information is - Webmaster.
-----------------------
On the 6th February Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her Diamond Jubilee. As part of the celebrations to mark the occasion the British government has announced that a Diamond Jubilee Medal will be issued to those who have met the following criteria:

· Members of the Armed Forces (Regular and Reserves) who have completed five full calendar years of service on 6 February 2012;

· Emergency services personnel who have been in paid service, retained or in a voluntary capacity, who have to face the prospect of dealing with emergencies as part of their conditions of service, and have completed five full calendar years of service on 6 February 2012;

· Operational prison services personnel who are regularly exposed to difficult and sometimes emergency situations and have completed five full calendar years of service on 6 February 2012;

· All Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) who are in service on 6 February 2012 and have completed five full calendar years of service;

· Living holders of the Victoria Cross and George Cross; and

· Members of the Royal Household.

The Canadian government has also announced the issue of a Diamond Jubilee medal to 60,000 Canadians.

Here in Australia the parliamentary secretary to the Prime Minister, Senator Kate Lundy,

has been tasked to decide on whether a Diamond Jubilee Medal will be issued by the Australian government, and if so what the criteria will be.

After a year that saw the ADF and emergency services around the country perform their duties superbly in difficult circumstances, the awarding of a Australian Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal with the same criteria as the UK medal would be a fitting mark of respect to those in uniform that serve us.

If you think this is a worth cause, you can help by forwarding this email to those that can help, and by contacting Senator Lundy directly at:
