The South Vietnamese Campaign Medal

Issued by the Government of South Vietnam to local and allied forces who served in Vietnam. New Zealanders who had six months service in Vietnam between 1964 and 1973 became eligible for the South Vietnamese Campaign Medal in 1966 when permission was granted for it to be worn. The date clasp ‘1960’ is worn on the ribbon of the full size and miniature medals. The ribbon of the medal is green to represent freedom with three vertical white stripes to represent purity.
