Just wondering if there is a key part to the qualifications? Basically, I have found out through the Home office that I should qualify for the QDJM in one of my current part time roles. This is mainly through time served (6 years) in the regular army. However, it appears that I do not have to be "Sworn in" in my new role to qualify (Only those taking criteria form one role must have been sworn in on ro before 7th Feb 2007). This got me thinking, is this because I have already sworn allegiance to the Queen when I joined the forces? Therefore, one pledge accounts towards the accumilated service factor. I do have an interest in Jubilee & Coronation medals, (1887 onwards) but can't find any information on this little subject. I'm that only members of the parade in 1887, 1897 & 1902 were eligable for the medals and I don't even know if there was a time served policy. It also appears that it was down to the local government to dish them out, but obviously police, military and royal household members came in to this somewhere. Any offers of help from the historians amongst you?!
