On December 24, 2011, the Wuhan Ordnance Non-commissioned-officer School of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) issued new-type defense service badges to its officers and men for commending and awarding their long active service.

The defense service badges are divided into three types of gold, silver and bronze.

The gold badges are issued to officers and men who have served in the army more than 35 years; the silver ones are issued to those who have served between 20 and 35 years; and the bronze ones are issued to those who have served between 10 and 20 years.

It is reported that since August 1, 2011, the Chinese PLA has officially used new-type insignias, medals, badges and award certificates. The picture shows that the instructors of the political work teaching office of the Wuhan Ordnance NCO School are joyful after they were issued the badges.
