    This is a very nice Air Efficiency (Long & Meritous Service) award to an officer in the Auxiliary Air Force, complete with paperwork showing his progression from pilot officer in 1939 to his retirement in in 1954 as a Squadron Leader (Wing Commander for Retirement Purposes). The Air Efficiency Award, post-nominal letters AE for officers, was instituted in 1942. It could be awarded after ten years of meritorious service to part-time officers, airmen and airwomen in the Auxiliary and Volunteer Air Forces of the United Kingdom and the Territorial Air Forces and Air Force Reserves of the Dominions, the Indian Empire, Burma, the Colonies and Protectorates. The award is a GVI medal impressed to "Sqn. Ldr. E.F. Tanner A.A.F." The medal was struck in silver and is oval, 38 millimetres (1.5 inches) high and 32 millimetres (1.26 inches) wide, with a raised rim on each side. It is suspended from a silver bar in the form of an eagle in flight, looking towards its left, affixed to the medal by means of a single-toe claw and a pin through the upper edge of the medal. The obverse has his coinage type effigy and is circumscribed "GEORGIVS VI D: G: BR: OMN: REX F: D: IND: IMP:" reading around from the bottom. The initials "HP" below the truncation of the King's neck are those of the designer of the obverse of the medal, Thomas Humphrey Paget, an English medal and coin designer. The reverse is smooth and is inscribed "AIR EFFICIENCY AWARD" in three lines.It comes complete with its correct ribbon. A nice Long Service award to a man who went through WW2 and beyond.
