ttd0 Posted 6 November , 2002 Share Posted 6 November , 2002 This has proved to be a can of worms on some forums. I think that some (but not all) commemorative medals have their place especially those for National Service and the Suez incident. Or for those who served for several years in the forces/reserves but never got anything, not even a Northern Ireland medal. Lets face it, the UK aren't exactly good at handing out medals - have only just decided on Sierra Leone and Afghanistan awards. Servicemen are not allowed to wear medals awarded by Kuwait after the Gulf, but most of the other coallition servicemen are. But I would not want us to go the way of the US where you get a medal if you can fire a pistol. But I do think the comm. medals should be mounted on the right breast or under officially awarded medals. Just wondering where other peoples' views lie.
