Miniature circular silver medal with ornate scrolled ribbon suspension bar; the face with the crowned head of King George VI facing left, circumscribed ‘GEORGIVS VI DEI: GRA: BRITT: OMN: REX FID: DEF:’ (George VI by the Grace of God King of Great Britain Defender of the Faith); the reverse with a standing winged Victory with Greek helmet, an upright trident in her left hand, a laurel wreath in her right hand crowning an upright winged sword; diameter 18.04mm (0.71 inch); age-toned; on original ribbon with ‘MALAYA’ clasp.

The Medal was instituted on 19 January 1923 to be awarded to Army and Air Force personnel involved in small conflicts outside Africa and India from 1918 onwards where a separate campaign medal was not issued.

The Malaya clasp was awarded for active service in Malaya against Communist insurgents.

A good period miniature.
