Garderhusarregimentetes 400 Śrs erindringsmedalje
Guard Hussar Regiment 400th anniversary commemorative medal


Instituted January 1st 2014 by Queen Margrethe 2nd


Instituted to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Guard Hussar Regiment - As the first Danish army regiment, it is also the Danish Army 400th anniversary.
The medal is awarded to members of the Hussar Regiment, to helpers during the celebrations as a sign of appreciation or it may be purchased by old guardsmen (Not sure about the procedure on that last part).

This medal is a bit strange, compared to normal Danish medals. The medal have been approved and instituted by Queen Margrethe, but it's not allowed for wear on a general basis. In the year 2014 the medal may be worn at any Hussar Regiment celebrations. After the year 2014 the medal may only be worn at the annual Hussar Regiment Birthday Parade or any internal parades.
