RIBBONThe ribbon is 1.25 inches wide and consists of three equal stripes: dark blue, white, and dark blue, with a thin dark blue stripe down the centre of the white.
NAMINGThe edge of the medal was impressed until 1944, and thereafter engraved with the service number, rank, initials, surname and service of the recipient.
DATESThe medal was instituted on 14 October 1914.
