At least I think so, and no its not a question about getting a medal for writing (or even reading) a novel on tour What I'd like to know is what is the prime time period for doing 22 years or longer and getting the absolute maximum number of medals possible? I would guess from about 1982 - onwards; that way you could get Corporate,NI,Cyprus,GW1,Op Haven,Angola and the various plethora of Balkans gongs before moving on to Iraq and Afghgan. Any Ive missed? Ive not taken into account LS&GC or Gallantry awards. PS - Yes, its been a long day.
