Right, so I've had a quick look through and reckon there's at least 10 that I could send off for, assuming that I can save up the £1000 required (naturally I would want the personalised presentation case for each and the engraving) when and where can they be worn?

Fuck me sweet Jesus.

Why?

Fair play though Pontius, you must have balls of steel, I couldn't do that. that's a "walt to far" for me. I'd rather pretend to be an ex Chef, I think I'd get less shit.

My old man was a National Serviceman, RN dabber and bought about 4 off that site as he reckoned he was "entitled" although there was a tenous link to 3 of them. He told me they were heirlooms for me, didn't have the heart to tell him they were worthless crap and I'd rather gargle battery acid than have them.

Perhaps you should apply for the Cold War medal. Looks a bit more colourful, and you'd qualify if you took more than one cold shower on any war canoe over a period of three years.

Not saying anything along those lines was the right thing to do, WreckerL (in my personal opinion).

He was dead chuffed with them TBH Sol, showed them off to everyone who went to his house. If I was that way inclined I could treat myself to the International Submariners medal and the Cold War medal. I'd buy one if it was the "Stuck under the ice for 3 months at a time bored shitless" medal, not sure what the ribbon colour would be.

Belay my last pipe. I was in the newsagent this afternoon and saw an 'I am 10' badge. I thought this was just as good, if not better, than the Crab medal and decided to get it, rather than be reminded of the joys of training with the RAC. I tried for the McDonald's star but made the mistake of spelling my name correctly on the application form, so I wasn't allowed to play.

At last years Remembrance parade at the Cenotaph, I noticed that two lads in our SAMA82 platoon were wearing that Cold War Medal along with another ribbon I did not recognize - sad twats. They were both ex matelots as well.

That is the only medal I would be eligible for, will not buy one though as I already have my Theakstons medal.
