BZ to all & some cracking Phot coverage from the Sun. There is a wee 'but' though...

<<...The Prime Minister's dad, Stanley Johnson, was also in attendance proudly showing off his own medals.
He said: "This is a brilliant night - it's so important that we recognise what they do for us and honour them."...>>

Nowt wrong with SJ's turnout, or what he said. Sadly, a Sun's journalistic/editorial faux pas WRT 'own medals'

Worn on his RH side? Convention indicates a forebear's rack so most unlikely to be his own medals. Plus SJ's D of B being 18th August 1940 yet those medals are from WW2 era 1939 to 1945...
