Walting Falklands 'Captain'

The ????? is Military Cross. The Non article 5 / QGJ one looks more like the Distinguished Service Cross and the Long Service Good Conduct is 15 years.

The non-Art 5 is definitely that - note the silvery thread running down the middle - I got mine out of the drawer to check. Yes, realise that LS+GC is for 15 years service, but was questioning the minimum amount of time required as a rating/SR before transferring UY/SUY/SD that allows you to make up the balance of the 15 years as an Officer. Agree MC.

But where's his Bomber pin?

(I'm sure he was on the opposite crew to me on the Massive when they hit 2,000 feet at 42.5 knots with that 47 degrees bow down angle - They do tell that it almost woke him up.:slow:)

Falklands War 1982.. The guy is 51years of age now !!!! Alarm bells for me, for a four ringer :slow: 51-year-old company boss was at the centre of a fraud probe after claims that he had never served in the Royal Navy, let alone become a decorated captain. Detectives are also investigating whether Falklands hero Simon Weston was taken in by Mr Elliott
