Application Information

The information sought in this form is required to assess eligibility for the Civilian Service Medal 1939-1945.

__________________________________________________________________________________


The Civilian Service Medal recognises service in eligible civilian organisations the members of which served in support of the Australian war effort on the home front during World War II. Qualifying service for the Medal is at least 180 days enrolment in one or more approved organisations during the wartime period between 3 September 1939 and 2 September 1945 (inclusive).

__________________________________________________________________________________


Two guides are included with this application and you may keep both for your records:


  • a guide to eligibility for the Medal and a list of the approved organisations; and

  • an application guide to help you fill out the form.

__________________________________________________________________________________
Applications can be made by next-of-kin for the Medal to be issued when a relative is deceased but note that:


  • only one Medal can be awarded to recognise eligible service; and




  • as the Medal will belong to the Estate of that deceased person, the Honours Section will require a Statutory Declaration giving the relationship of the applicant to the deceased person.




  • A Statutory Declaration is also required by the Honours Section if you are applying for an award on behalf of another person who is unable to apply personally due to illness or infirmity.


Note: There are penalties under Commonwealth, State and Territory laws for making false statements in Statutory Declarations.

__________________________________________________________________________________
When completing the application form you will be asked to provide information about the awardee. ‘Awardee’ means the person whose service is to be recognised.
