The 1914-15 Star is a crowned four-pointed star with crossed swords and a wreath of oak leaves, with the royal cypher at the foot and a central scroll inscribed 1914-15. The 1914-15 Star is identical to the 1914 Star, except for the omission of AUG and NOV, and the scroll across the centre being inscribed 1914-15. The reverse of the 1914-15 Star is plain, except for the inscribed name and service details of the recipient. The medal is bronze and is attached to the ribbon by a ring.
The ribbon is watered silk with red, white and blue stripes. This is the same ribbon as that worn on the 1914 Star.
Stamped on the back is "1641 - PTE R.S. Mitchell - 18/BNN A.I.F."
