    PS it was the Aust Service Medal 39-45 that had the qual period reduced from 18 months overseas service to 1 month in 1996, not the 39-45 Star.
    As far as i know the eligibility was changed for the 39-45 star too... For guys who were at the time serving overseas but because the war ended and cut their time short to less than 6 months.
