Orders, Decorations and Medals of Australia
Links and other references
Many of the images come from material sent to me by the Australian Government. Particular thanks are also due to Lukasz Grazewski and Greg Henderson who provided a wealth of information and pictures. Detective Constable Vince Pannell supplied information about Police medals and Arjeh van der Sluis found me the police website, Douglas Bunney sent a picture of his own Cadet Forces Medal, Andrew Dixon told me about a new bar for the Active Service Medal and Paul Macpherson pointed out an error!
Grateful thanks to Dix Noonan Webb, who have allowed the use of images from their catalogues.
