I'm intrigued as to why you are asking?

I wasn't there, but I'd guess at:

Not worn.

Hessian

God knows. Butt number on the stock?

Brown

It was 25 years ago, so if any Falklands vets are still in they would all be commissioned by now, captains even majors. There are bound to be some in the battalions still kicking round, as said Rooper can still think of some.

So are you saying that no Pte soldiers on the start line are serving in 2 or 3 Para now, regardless of whether they are now commissioned or not?

Sorry Boris7, but one of them got an MID for 3 Paras Herrick tour, and one at least is definately still working in 2 Para.

Guess the COs have short memories!
