The General Service Medal (GSM 08), was introduced in 2015 to recognise specified operations, not qualifying for another campaign medal. The medal was first awarded in 2016 for service in operations since January 2008. Like its predecessor medal the General Service Medal (1962), operations will be denoted by clasps which indicate the geographic area of operations and not a specific operation.


The claps for the medal are named based on the geographic region of operations and not for specific named operations. 

The clasps for this medal and their qualifying periods of service are as follows
