International Submariners Medal

Any submariners got this medal yet if so what is the general opinion . I like the idea but don't like the idea of any con job . IS IT OFFICIAL in any way .
 
Well I've ordered mine - us sundodgers have to take whatever we can get! As far as "official" goes, it's a commemorative medal, struck by what seems to be a reputable firm, to mark 100 years of submarining.
 
One born every minute, eh?

Don't forget to buy your genuine Arctic Service medal, for when you went under the ice not to mention the genuine NATO medal for that time when you did a NATO exercise. There's also, for our older viewers, a genuine National Service medal for those two years service to the crown.

Reputable company?

Or someone inventing medals to flog & make a fast buck out of?
 
As a 'commemorative' medal it is not subject to the Honours committee dictat (as interpreted by them), and should not be worn when in uniform, as it was probably not sanctioned by HMQ, and therefore will not be issued by the Medals Office.

Having said that, if you're entitled to the medal, go get it, it'll be something you can hand down or pass on to kids etc

:mrgreen:

Anyone who has £37.50 + P&P is entitled to it mate, they ain't checking eligibility, that's for sure.

Got yours yet ? ^~

Bigbury Mint do a nice line in commem medals, get enough of them and someone can look like Mountbatten on parade. :thumright:
 
Guess the only problem with buying these type of "commemorative" type medals is when you come up against a guy with a chest full of the real things - have to fall back on sea stories I suppose.
