Remembrance

An apt time I think to thank all those currently serving, both above and below the waves. We old and bold have done our bit, and now you've taken the reins, you're doing a great job! BZ

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.
