Defence Honours & Awards is part of the Defence People Group.
The XXI Commonwealth Games Citation is issued to eligible ADF members who served on Operation ATLAS in April 2018.
The Directorate of Honours and Awards dispatched the citations in late 2019 on behalf on the Queensland Police.
The citation features three panels of blue, yellow and red, with white striping either side of the central yellow panel. The colours of the citation represent the Gold Coast where the Games were held – surf (blue), sand (yellow) and sun (red).
The ribbon is surrounded by an antique silver metallic frame featuring the wording 'XXI COMMONWEALTH GAMES' at the top of the frame and '2018' at the bottom of the frame.
To confirm your name is on the nominal roll, please contact YourCustomer.Service@defence.gov.au.
Current Serving members can request the citation be recorded on the Recognised Achievements panel in PMKeyS by contacting their Unit Administration.
The citation is authorised for restricted wear at Queensland Police Service events.
