how do they do it

Just read my local newspaper submariner gets commendation for support to new recruits, lovely picture 32 years service Golden Jubilee Medal and LS & GC on his chest. So much other unrecognised service and so much submarine pay - yeah I know I'm a cynical old cnut.

How the fcuk do you spend all that time in boats without a decoration of any kind, not many general service guys with that length of service have gone outside without an operational medal. Now I shall stick my head back up my arse before I start taking flak.

At the risk of nibbling, I got paid the operational bonus/allowance/sweetener/whatever two years ago (and therefore must have been in an operational area), but received no medal. Last year, I was in virtually the same bits of water under the same opcon, but received neither. You try and work that out, and see what conclusion you come to.
Badges? We don't need no stinking badges!
