Royal Naval Reserve Long Service and Good Conduct Medal

A long service medal awarded to members of the Royal Naval Reserve (RNR). Established in 1909, the medal was awarded to petty officers and ratings who had served a minimum of 15 years; war service counting double. A plain green ribbon was initially in use, with white stripes added to the ribbon in 1941.

The same medal, but differentiated by the ribbon, was also awarded to other Naval Reserve branches such as the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve (RNVR), Royal Fleet Reserve (RFR), Royal Naval Auxiliary Sick Berth Reserve, and Royal Naval Wireless Auxiliary Reserve.

In 1957 the RNR and RNVR were merged and the medal ribbon was changed to equal stripes of blue, white, green, white, blue. The medal was replaced by the Volunteer Reserves Service Medal in 2000.
