AOSM - Border Protection

Our replica of this item is a superior quality die-struck version.

The Australian Operational Service Medal (AOSM BP) for Border Protection was instituted on 22 May 2012. The AOSM was established to provide recognition to Defence personnel involved in declared operations or other service that the Chief of the Defence Force deems to be worthy. For ADF members, the AOSM is awarded as a standard medal with a unique ribbon for each operation.

If you need to add a Multi Tour Indicator (MTI) to denote multiple tours on a particular operation, you can do so here.
