I have often wondered the reaction by veterans if a RMR or TA vet arrived wearing no medals just the beret say red or green for which he was entitled to having earned the right would that person be called a WALT.

I don't understand that. If they've earned the right to wear it why would they be a walt?

Just the mutterings I have heard from a few people. The other half asked why I have never worn my green beret at rememberance parade. Look at him he was only in the TA I heard somebody comment one time a while back when a local lad in RA TA marched past. Wearing medals you are not entitled to and a beret you have earned are different

In my experience, those who cry walt are those who have either never served or those that did, but feel so insecure about their service that they question those who wear Maroon/Green lids etc, because they never had the balls to go for it, so anyone that wears one must be a walt in their mind. These are the sort of people that love reading novels written by former members of "Them". If you have earned something, wear it.

I don't see the difference between a ex-regular or ex-reservist wearing their beret of whatever colour at Remembrance. There are plenty of old and bold who have served for long careers and have no operational gong. The next logical step is that we should then question the right of a chef who doesn't leave Bastion for 6 months to wear his OSM because he didn't serve in FOB or go the other side of the gate.

The best view I've heard on all of this is the 'integrity and friendship' argument; only you and those that served with you know what you've done and therefore what the gong means to you. Beyond that it's down to who you are now and what you feel is the right thing to do and not do, wear and not wear.
