Tamgha-i-Diffa / Medal of Service

-- Established as a general service medal for award to all members of the Pakistani military and semi-military forces, to members of states' forces, and to British officers and men serving with Pakistan's armed forces. The initial statute allowed the use of the postnominal abbreviation "T.D." for those who had been awarded this decoration, but this provision seems never to have been placed into effect. Established: 16 March 1957, by the President of Pakistan - No. F. 40(3)/Pres/57, Gazette of Pakistan 19 March 1957. Obverse: 36-mm circular copper-nickel medal. Star and crescent in the center, surrounded by a wreath. Above, the inscription "" or "Khidmat-i-Pakistan" or "The Service of Pakistan." Suspended from an ornate straight-bar swiveling suspender and a bar with the campaign relevant to the award; bars both in English and bilingual bars in Urdu/Bengali have been seen. The medal is rarely seen named. The medal has also been seen and reported in gilt, but this seems to be a totally unofficial modification. Reverse: Plain, open circle in the center. When named, the naming might be here? Ribbon: 33 mm, green, with central stripes of dark blue, red, light blue, edged with thinner white stripes. Green 7 mm, white 2 mm, dark blue 5 mm, red 5 mm, light blue 5 mm, white 2 mm, green 7 mm.

Here's the full medal bar for 1214303 Dvr Haq Nawaz. RPA although there is some question on the pedigree of this bar, as the Tamgha-i-Jamhuria 1375 / Republic Medal, 1956 is out of place. there has been some speculation over wether this is a vet put together or a put together "tailor" bar that is the curse of Pakistan
