I received the Australian Active Service Medal that is pictured  from the WA RSL. The medal has the clasp Iraq 2001 but there is no Iraq Campaign Medal. However, there is a clasp missing which must be for East Timor as the other ribbon is the UNTAET medal. Also on this ribbon is the insignia for a Meritorious Unit Citation. The MUC was awarded to four units for service in East Timor and I was fortunate enough to be in one of them as well.
I spoke to the recipient today and I hope met him in the near future and hand the medal over personally.
The returned medal tally is now 1276.
