Remembrance

All

I was in a market in Leek, Staffordshire on Saturday and was surprised to see that they had the Armed Forces Veterans badge for sale. I asked if they had received it/them from former service personnel and was surprised to hear that they can be bought from the supplier.

I cannot see the logic in having a badge, to celebrate and remember your time in the services being sold to anyone that wants one. Surely they should only be available to veterans.

Anyone know the exact rules around this? I just feel it leaves the badge open to misuse by potential Walts.

£4.99 on eBay and the UPO made me sign for mine when I left!

My dad did National Service and bought one in a military surplus shop. They're pointless and always have been.

The eligibility criteria if you want one, although probably quicker to get one on the internet or second hand shop.

 
They should have ones service number built into an explosive device as part of each badge. On the wearer being unable to recite said service number on initially wearing the badge, it would self destruct vaporizing the wearer.
Ok, one tot too many this afternoon....cheers shippers, we know who we are and can wear that badge with pride.....

As November approaches again, let us remember the sacrifice of many to allow the growth of Latte drinking shites.

Imagine you were born in 1900.
When you are 14
World War I begins
and ends at 18
with 22 million deaths.
Soon after, a global pandemic
The ′ Spanish Flu ′,
kills 50 million people.
You come out alive and free
You are 20 years old.
Then, at age 29, you survive the global economic crisis that began with the collapse of the New York Stock Exchange, causing inflation, unemployment and hunger.
At 33, the Nazis came to power.
You are 39 when WWII begins and ends at 45. During the Holocaust (Shoah), 6 million Jews died.
There will be more than 60 million deaths in total.
When you are 52, the Korean War begins.
At 64, the Vietnam War begins and ends at 75
A boy born in 1985 thinks his grandparents have no idea how difficult life is, but they have survived several wars and disasters.
Boy born in 1995 and now 25 thinks it's the end of the world when his Amazon package takes more than three days to arrive or when he doesn't get more than 15 `` likes '' for his photo posted on Facebook or Instagram. .
In 2020, many of us are living comfortably, we have access to different sources of home entertainment, and we often have more than we need.
But people are complaining about everything.
However, they have electricity, telephones, food, hot water and a roof over their heads.
None of this existed before.
But humanity has survived much more dire circumstances and has never lost the joy of living.
Maybe it's time to be less selfish, to stop complaining and crying.
