Deeps said:I still have my dagger from telic 1 .CO did stop us from wearing it. However every RM I have met since has without exception shaken my hand and said we should wear that dagger with pride .Looking forward to being part of 3 CDO next year on HERRICK 9.QDG (THE WELSH CAVALRY)
I don't have it in digital format, I'm at a BFPO for a while now and my photo book is in storage. You can't make any ones faces out as the phot was taken from a 539 LC about 100m out in the lake in the middle of Sadams Palace in Basra! I would love a digital copy of it if ones going though.HarryBosch said:p.s. Is the pic on here any place?
Deeps said:It was a few years ago.I think it was all to do with who would wear it. The lads that served with C SQN on telic? The lads that are in C SQN after telic ?what happens to the boys that were awarded the dagger at Umm qasr port by Brig Dutton when they move to another SQN. At the moment there are only about 10 lads still in C SQN that were with 3 CDO on the AL FAW/OP JAMES.We still have loads of pride about the it. We are back with 3 CDO again for Afghanistan next year ,so hopefully we get to wear the dagger with pride once more.
