Colonial Prison Service Long Service Medal. EIIR first issue (19 Ch. Warder Mohd. Lancy Bin Kaman. Fed. Malaya)



The medal with official corrections to naming, and typical for this particular medal issue

Note: The recipients 'service number' is 19 - indicating an original muster on the rolls of the Federated Malaya Prison Service

The recipient was of Malay ethnicity and was holding the rank of 'Chief Warder' in the Federation of Malaya Prisons Service

The medal was awarded for 18 years continuous or aggregated full-time and continuous service

Interestingly all members of the Federation of Malaya Prison Service who qualified for the medal, had served prior to - and presumably through - the war years (subject to screening by the retunring British colonial authority post liberation in September 1945). Unlike the experience of the Federation of Malaya Police, and Straits Settlements Police, the personnel of the Prisons Service in Malaya did not qualify for any of the Second World War campaign medals, or the post-war General Service Medal with clasp 'Malaya', unless they had qualified for such medal while performing other uniformed service

An especially rare colonial issue for Malaya (now Malaysia), as the Regualtions for the award of Colonial Prison Service Medal was published in the Federation of Malaya Government Gazette of 30 May 1957, however only l3 x months later the Federation of Malay became a fully independent country, from the 31 August 1957. Except for retrospective / late claims, The Malaysian Prison Service no longer qualified for the award of the Colonial Prison Services Medal after 31 August 1957

Organisation of American States (OAS): Medal of Merit



Medal riband fitted with crimp brooch riband that is fitted with long hinged pin and intricate drop lock & clasp fittings

The Organization of American States 'Merit Medal' has its origins in the 1965 Dominican Republic crisis. A leftist revolution broke out that would have succeeded had it not been for an American military intervention in cooperation with the Organization of American States or OAS. To honour the participants of this campaign the Inter-American Peace Medal for Merit was designed with a Spanish legend and inscription and showing the western hemisphere

The OAS came into being in 1948 with the signing in Bogota, Colombia, of the Charter of the OAS, which entered into force in December 1951. It was subsequently amended by the Protocol of Buenos Aires, signed in 1967, which entered into force in February 1970; by the Protocol of Cartagena de Indias, signed in 1985, which entered into force in November 1988; by the Protocol of Managua, signed in 1993, which entered into force in January 1996; and by the Protocol of Washington, signed in 1992, which entered into force in September 1997

The Organization was established in order to achieve among its member states as stipulated in Article 1 of the Charter, "an order of peace and justice, to promote their solidarity, to strengthen their collaboration, and to defend their sovereignty, their territorial integrity, and their independence"

Today, the OAS brings together all 35 independent states of the Americas and constitutes the main political, juridical, and social governmental forum in the Hemisphere. In addition, it has granted permanent observer status to 69 states, as well as to the European Union (EU)

The Organization uses a four-pronged approach to effectively implement its essential purposes, based on its main pillars: democracy, human rights, security, and development
