    14 is an impressive number and one usually out of the reach of most who take the Queens shilling.
    Of course his MM and DCM are well documented and he will have a GSM for Op Banner and a Gulf War medal but what about the other 10?

    Any ideas on what they are for? As he was in the RGJ for a number of years its possible he was awarded a UN medal at some point?
  2. One for best drop handle tash.
    One for getting the colour of the boat house at heerford right.
  3. One for the worst pre-op briefing to B20.

  6. One for killing an iraqi whilst tied to a chair with his hands tied behind his back with a 203
  7. Cold war medal?

  13. Tsk. I only asked. And I was on the balcony too. Well, from my armchair in BAOR.
  14. I tried sailing through Selection but I found that a boat didn't work very well on Pen-y-Fan so I failed quite spectacularly.

    It made all the arguing I did to get it towed out there by the jackwagon seem like a waste of time too.

  15. Aside from DCM, MM, GSM, Granby, UNPROFOR, IFOR, possibly UNFICYP, possibly an ACSM, possibly a LS&GC.

    There is no reports of him being involved in Rhodesia or Falklands, and no other campaign medals were issued between 82-93.

    Others Ops whilst he was SAS (84 & 93) may have attracted a bar to GSM, but no medals were struck for specific ops.

    Maybe some flip-flop medals from Saudi & Kuwait?
