Not sure you are interested but the RNR do not get a LS&GC anymore, we have the VSM (VRM?). It is very pretty and no one knows what it is!

VRSM ;) you must serve 10 years and receive bounty in at least 9 of them.

Christened the "Blair" in some units in loving memory of the grate leader at the time of its introduction :)

How ingenious. Nobody wants a "Blair Medal" so to avoid being awarded it they make sure they don't qualify for bounty, thus making them ineligible for the medal... this has the knock on effect of reducing the sum of money required to pay for bounties... clever buggers the MoD accountants... :number1:

Font of all things Pusser. I have asked this before but with out response. If I failed to wear a GSM (Borneo) with my No.1s lets say for Captain S/m's Divisions did I commit any offence. i.e. is it compuslory to wear medals that have been awarded when in No1's

Dondon, you are too kind, I also have the very shiny, very gold foil covered chocolate coin medal that is the Golden Jubilee Medal. That felt a bit like the ones that the americans get for crossing the Atlantic!

I would have to say 'yes' (although I do not have access to the reference out here in DG)... so "Git yer lid!" :lol:

Surely the statute of limitations applies, must of been in the late sixties. Still to be on the safe side alert Gatwick so that this heinous crime can be fully investigated should the guilty party return to the UK. :thumright: :dwarf:
