The Indian General Service Medal (1936) with Northwest Frontier 1937-1939 Bar
The Indian General Service Medal (1936 IGSM) was a campaign medal approved on 3 August 1938, for issue to officers and men of the British and Indian armies.
The 1936 IGSM was awarded for various minor military campaigns in India, during 1936 to 1939. Each action covered by the medal was represented by a clasp on the ribbon; two were sanctioned. Recipients of a Mention in Despatches were entitled to wear an oak leaf emblem on the ribbon.
The medal was struck at both the London and Calcutta mints. The London issue has a more ornate suspender than the Calcutta version, which has a simple claw mount.
