Award Awarded The Imperial Service Medal
The Imperial Service Medal was awarded in the reign of George V to non-managerial staff with 25 years service upon retirement
In 1920 the design of the medal was changed to that of a silver circular medal for both men and women. The front face was the 'civil head' of George V; the reverse depicted a finely sculptured male figure gazing out across the sea towards the setting sun. It symbolised rest after labour, and the words 'For Faithful Service' were written below. The 'crowned head' of George V replaced the uncrowned 'civil head' in 1931, and subsequent monarchs have been indicated by 'crowned effigies'.

The medals were worn suspended from the left breast or shoulder by a ribbon watered red with a central light blue stripe. Women usually wore the ribbon tied into a bow.
