Any opinions or thoughts on why there is no medal for Op KIPION? There was a conversation at work a few weeks ago about the OSM's awarded for TELIC and HERRICK, but the lack of medals for the long-standing maritime equivalent of those operations... Does anyone know any reason why there is not a gong for KIPION, or perhaps why there should be? Obviously KIPION is nowhere near as pew pew as TELIC etc, but maybe the medal might well bring some awareness of the RN's role to joe public. Therefore not only would be a healthy reward for those serving, but it may well also reduce the UK's 'sea blindness' (look at the press coverage the Artic Star got,) and also to increase morale within the service... Thoughts?
