Never heard of this before - how long's it been going on ?

For as long as sailors have been completing 15 years or more of undetected crime. Are you saying no one ever told you? :sad1:

(Good one though :thumright: )

Well I never!
As a holder of both the LSGC (RN), and the Territorial Efficiency Medal (awarded after 12 years good conduct), I'm amazed. As a hoarder of insignificant bits if paper I would certainly have obtained a copy of the supplements in which my name appeared had I known.
I can only echo 5dits sentiments.
I never heard it mentioned during my 38 years total service!

shame really as i got my medal 2 years late, due to JPA and an old Divisional officer forgetting to ask for it, even though i asked him about 4 times

All is not lost. If you go to the online Gazette's 'Advanced Search' page and enter enough detail, you should be able to find any entry with your name. You can then print it off or purchase a copy online.

The London Gazette also contains announcements of all officers' promotions and appointments plus honours and decorations for all Service personnel and civilians. Matters affecting Service personnel generally appear in the MoD supplements instead of the main editions. In the old days, Royal Navy announcements in the Gazette were issued by the Admiralty. Just for interest, try selecting 'World War II' in the Historic Event box under Date Search then type "Royal Navy" as the 'exact phrase' under Words. You could be fascinated by what you find.
