The Military Long Service Bar was to demonstrate the King’s high esteem for individuals who faithfully served for a long period of time.

The I Class Clasp was awarded for 21 years of service. The II Class Clasp was awarded for 15 years of service and the III Class Clasp was awarded for 9 years of service.
