In light of recent joint operations the Ministry of Defence have decided to award a new medal for advancing the tri-service cause. This award is to be called the Purple Helmet and will be given to anyone who has, in the line of duty or otherwise, engaged in sexual intercourse with members of all three services. Several classes of medals exist: The Purple Helmet - shag anyone of any rank from each of the three services. Accumlated Purple Helmet - shag one from each of the junior ranks, Senior NCOs and the officer's mess. The Purple Helmet and Bar - A rare award, for men easier for women, going to anyone, who ,in addition to the above, has engaged with the Royal Marines. A serious undertaking given the number and quality of women in the RM band service. There is no accumulated version of this for men to date. All recommendations for this award must be proceeded by an appropriate citation being published either in Arrse or in the London Gazette.
