Awarded to members of the Dutch Contingent of the UN Forces in Korea (both on land and at sea). Issued bij the Korean Government as gratitude for the assistance of UN-forces in the Korean War.

The medal was not officially recognized by the Netherlands government, therefore it could not be worn on the uniform both as ribbon or as medal.

Several models exist, the original one has a suspension bar as shown on the picture.
