It looks like the Territorial Force Efficiency Medal awarded for long service in the Territorial Force between 1908 and 1921. The reverse of the medal will actually have the words "Territorial Force Efficiency Medal' on it  :)

However, it has the wrong ribbon. It appears to have the Territorial Decoration (which was for Commissioned Officers).

The ribbon for the medal should be https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f2/Territorial_Efficiency_Medal%2C_obverse.png

This is the earlier version - note the inclusion of the word "Force" - replaced by the TEM in 1921

Territorial Force Efficiency Medal, instituted 1908; ribbon dark green with central yellow stripe.
Territory Efficiency Medal, instituted 1921; ribbon dark green with yellow edges.

Replaced by Efficiency Medal, instituted 1930; ribbon dark green with central yellow stripe. Suspender bar denotes area of service (e.g. "Territorial")

Ah, my mistake. My apologies.
