Circular silvered metal medal on double kukri and ribbon bar suspension bar; the face with the image of Akash Bhairab, Hindu god of the sky, a Nepalese inscription on a ribbon below; the reverse with the Nepalese flag, dated ‘2023’ (V.S. 2023 = A.D. 1966) below; on original ribbon. The medal was instituted in 1966 to be awarded for distinguished service in the Nepalese Army Air Service. The Service became a separate air force unit in 1979 but was subsequently reabsorbed into the army. The Service has transport and supply capabilities but no offensive aircraft. It numbers no more than 500 members and the medal is in consequence very rare.
