The Imperial Service Medal (ISM) is a medal affiliated with the Imperial Service Order. The medal was established under the statutes of the Imperial Service Order, on 8 August 1902, by King Edward VII, with the first awards appearing in the London Gazette in May 1903.
It is presented to selected civil servants who complete at least 25 years meritorious service, upon their retirement. It is primarily an award for manual and administrative-grade civil servants, including clerks, workers in H M Dockyards and, prior to 1969 when it moved from central government control, the Post Office. Prison officers were eligible prior to the establishment in 2010 of the Prison Services Long Service Medal. The minimum period of service was 20½ years in India prior to independence in 1947, and 16 years in unhealthy climates in other countries.
