The long awaited design of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal has been released. Sporting a "diamond" design on the reverse and a ribbon in keeping with other "Royal event" awards the medal, designed by Timothy Noad, will be awarded along similar lines to the QGJM - i.e. to those members of the uniformed services (armed forces, prison officers, police and other emergency service personnel etc.) who have served a full five years in uniform (and are still serving) on February 6 2012. It will also be awarded to VC and GC holders and members of the Royal Household.
