Health Warning - Beryllium Malaysian Government Medal 2010 Meet& Greets
Before going to your next local Greenies Meet&Greet in February June or October, get yourself a genuine "Pussers Greenies" name badge to wear and help all the others to remember who you are (it will also help YOU to remember who you are). First, you need to register by clicking here, then wait a day or so for the registration to be processed and after that, you can order a name badge from us. Payment can be made by direct credit to one of our bank accounts, the details of which are on the order form.
The latest on the meet & greets just gone is on a special page called "Meet & Greets" (either click the title or the button at the left). Some news may also be on the "Feedback" page.
This section has been relocated to our "Health
Here's one for we "older" Greenies . . . . (those serving somewhat before 1966).
The new Malaysian medal (Pingat Jasa Malaysia) application forms are now available on the DVA website and we have also made all three available here. There is the eligibility criteria, a form for a posthumous claim and a form for a claim from a person still serving, or now discharged.
To complete the application form, a lot of extra information is required, such as ships served on and actual dates served in the particular areas. All of this information is available on the Internet by going to the Veterans Review Board website and hunting around carefully to find your ship and the dates. There is a link at the top right (the Navy anchor) which will take you to a list of RAN ships and their dates of Operational Service.
It may be an idea to print the information available from the website, and send it as a separate attachment together with your completed application.
We have received information that, if you apply for this medal and get a knock back from Pussers saying that you do not have the required length of service in the area, or for almost any other reason, you should appeal or object in writing asking (or telling) them that your calculations allow you to arrive at an entirely different answer. Do this as soon as you receive your notification. In almost all cases, this appeal has resulted in a change of "heart" by Pussers and the eligibility for the medal has then been approved.
