Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

Vets should be awarded the Jubilee Medal.......

If it's this one



Rhodesia Medal
350-450
In December 1979, the CMF was established by the Commonwealth to supervise the implementation of the Lancaster House Agreement between the government of Southern Rhodesia and the guerilla forces of the Patriotic Front. Under the agreement UK authority was restored over its rebellious colony and a ceasefire implemented. A general election followed and independence was achieved by the new Republic of Zimbabwe.

The role of the multi-national force was to keep the peace between 22,000 guerrillas and the Rhodesian forces during the cease-fire run-up to the 1980 elections. The CMF was tasked with monitoring the agreement and resembled a UN observer mission except that its duties were more extensive, it enjoyed municipal backing.
CMFR

If it is then there were 2,500 issued according to ARRSE . I can't find any other Rhodesia medal in the book.

Was in the medal trade for 30 odd years and its true that certain medals will be scarcer to one or other of the services. Nutloose is right, NI GSM to RN is pretty scarce - very common to the army, but one to the Paras would still fetch a hefty premium over one to the RAF.

Its very difficult to give an accurate across the board valuation for any given medal as lots of factors will apply. Within the RAF, for example, medals to aircrew will fetch more than those on the ground, FJs more than transport/rotary etc, and in general the more senior the rank of the recipient, the more expensive the medal. Whether you think any of that is justified is immaterial - that's just market forces.

In the early days before Camp Britannique was constructed we had accommodation in Majunga town. Our neighbours in the upper floors were "Les Francois Blanc" who understandably did not appreciate the late night entertainment we sometimes provided. Their occasional criticism took the form of dropping flowerpots from on high. Being younger and fitter then we usually escaped injury.

Apologies and end of thread drift.
