Insignia of the Queen's Service Order and the Queen's Service Medal
Queen Elizabeth II established the Queen's Service Order (QSO) with its associated Queen's Service Medal (QSM) in 1975. The awards recognise voluntary service to the community and service through elected and appointed office. Both the Order and the Medal are for civilians only and military service is not eligible.
The badge of a Companion of the Queen's Service Order is shown on the top row in both bow and ribbon configurations. The Queen's Service Medal is shown on the bottom row in both bow and ribbon configurations.
