Data for how many service medals have been awarded to armed forces personnel from specific geographical locations such as Kilmarnock and Loudon are not held. Consequently, it is not possible to compare the figure for medals issued to those personnel from Kilmarnock and Loudon to that of the Scottish and national averages.

Since 7 February 2012, a total of 186,850 medals have been issued to serving personnel and veterans.

The figure refers to campaign and official commemorative medals, including the Diamond Jubilee Medal, and does not include honours or awards.
