Elliston at War - World War Two
World War II Newfoundland Volunteer War Service Medal
The Newfoundland Volunteer War Service Medal was created to honour those from Newfoundland & Labrador who served in the British Forces outside of the province. It was issued to those who did not receive a volunteer war service medal from another country and who had volunteered and served in units or organizations contributed by the Dominion of Newfoundland to the allied war effort. The period of qualifying service was from September 3, 1939 through September 2, 1945. The medal was established November 6, 1981 by the Volunteer War Service Medal Regulations, 1981, Newfoundland Regulation 204/81, and further amended by the Volunteer War Service Medal Act, 1993.
