MEDITERRANEAN 1940–43

The whole of the Mediterranean, the western limit being a line joining Cape Spartel and Cape Trafalgar.

All ships and submarines which took part in successful actions that are not covered by any of the named battle honours for the area. That is to say, the destruction of an enemy ship or submarine which was effected during and in connection with a recognized campaign, eg SICILY 1943, is regarded as an incidental item of the campaign and not as qualifying for a separate battle honour award. If however, the success was unconnected with any named operation for which a battle honour is granted, then it will qualify for the general award of MEDITERRANEAN with the year date(s). Minor bombardments also qualify for this award.

HMA Ships Hobart, Sydney, Nizam, Perth, Quiberon, Stuart, Vendetta, Voyager, Wollongong.
