Pacific Star

Issued for operational service in the Pacific theatre to British & Commonwealth forces between 8 December 1941 & 15 August 1945. Naval personnel serving in the Indian Ocean & South China Sea also qualified, as did Merchant Navy personnel. Recipients of the Pacific Star who qualified for the Burma Star received the clasp 'Burma' in lieu of the actual medal. The award of a clasp is denoted by a silver rosette when the ribbon alone is worn.
