Nato Former Design for Non-Article 5 medal for the Balkans
Ribbon is available per centimetre ( minimum 15cms )
The separate Non-Article 5 NATO medals awarded for personnel participating in the differing NATO-led operations in the Balkans were amalgamated into one generic “Non- Article 5” NATO medal with effect from 1 January 2003. Also, the use of Arabic numerals to indicate multiple tours was discontinued.
The medal is a circular medal of bronze alloy. The obverse depicts the ‘World-in-a Wreath’ emblem of the UN and the reverse has the inscription: ‘FOR SERVICE IN DEFENCE OF THE PRINCIPLES OF THE CHARTER OF THE UNITED NATIONS’.
