Awarded for defending Australia

Local Members, past and present, of the Australian Defence Force were awarded with their Australian Defence Medals (ADM) at a special ceremony at the Lismore Workers Club recently.

Page MP Ian Causley presented the medals and said that although creating a new medal was an extensive process which included consultation, design, testing, approval and manufacturing, it was an important way of recognising the conviction and devotion of Defence Force members.

The ADM is awarded to all Australian Defence Force members who have completed their initial enlistment period, or four years service, backdated until the end of World War II. It is a way of paying tribute to all personnel, regardless of whether they served in an operational arena or not.

Application forms for the ADM are available from Mr Causleys office, at RSLs or by calling 1800 111 321.
