A silver pick emblem denotes an act of bravery in the operational sphere while the
bronze pick emblem denotes distinguished service or continuous devotion to duty in
the non-operational sphere. This emblem will either be displayed on the ribbon of
the appropriate General Service or Campaign Medal.
There were no post nominals for the Military Forces Commendation although myself
and other collectors tend to use MFC (Op) or MFC (Non-Op) as a short hand way of
replacing the long title.
