The Baustralian Forces Decoration (post-nominal: BD) is a service medal given to troops of the Baustralian Armed Forces after 12 years. Bars are awarded each 10 years of subsequent service. The medal is based in design and concept to the Canadian Forces Decoration. The medal is also automatically given to the monarch.

Any time-based service medals awarded by macronational militaries are accepted for wear. For members of the Canadian Forces, for example, who've retired with 38 years of service are entitled to the Baustralian Forces Decoration after 4 years of service in the BAF. The recipient would also wear the CD with 3 bars.


The medal is awarded to officers and non-commissioned members of the Regular and Reserve forces, including honorary appointments. The medal may be awarded to persons with foreign service, provided that the individual has completed the full qualifying periods of service for each award.


The ribbon is dark blue, with three thin white striped marked thereon. The medal is octagonal and features a bust of John I on it. The reverse is the name, rank and service number of the receiver as well as the serial number of the medal itself. The bar is a gold colour with the crowned shield of arms of Baustralia.
