Multinational Force and Observers Medal



Australian Defence Force members working under Operation MAZURKA assist the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in the Sinai, Egypt.

The MFO awards system recognises service with the MFO, including special recognition of outstanding acts or performance, by military and civilian members of the MFO, prime Sinai Support Contractor employees and individuals or organisations from outside the MFO who make a particular contribution to the organisation. MFO awards are to be worn in accordance with national rules and regulations.

The MFO Medal is a meritorious service medal which is awarded to military and observer members of the MFO in recognition of honourable performance of duty with the MFO.

The medal can be awarded only once. Each additional six month (minimum 170 days) period of service is denoted with consecutive numerals.
