    Hope you don't mind Cabarfeidh but I rejigged it a bit since some of the sections, the MBEs in particular, were a bit hard to follow as large blocks of text.

    Yes, very disappointing really. Almost no one in the junior ranks. And yet these guys are at the sharp end. That's not to detract from those who have been honoured, but I really do feel that the man on the ground should be recognised for his contributions.

    Maybe they should bring back the BEM to make sure they do get recgonised. :?:

    Isn't it wierd? In the military, you have to be a Lieutenant Colonel to deserve an OBE apparently. In civvy street it's a doddle. Jonny Wilkinson got his 6 years after turning pro as a rugby player. Colin Jackson got a CBE when he retired after 18 years as a hurdler. 18 years...bloody hell, I haven't even got my LS&GC after that long....

    I did spot an old boss on there who is serving with a certain high-profile mob. 30-odd years in the ranks and beyond and gets a bloody MBE. When you think that June "face like a melted welly" Sarpong got an MBE last year, it must be shit when she's a year ahead of you in seniority! Meanwhile Kylie gets a fcuking OBE for singing other people's songs. Proud to be British!

    Didn't the AGC (SPS) do well?

    In response to the earlier comment regarding the lack of JNCOs getting recognised they do much better in the bi annual operational awards, which are arguably worth more as they are earned in the field.

    I didn't notice anyone from the Royal Regiment of Scotland on there (not including the headshed Late-Argylls). Am I blind?
