Was reading August soldier mag, theres an article about recent bravey awards. I noticed that several of them are listed as thus Pte ***** RW (V), why is that? From what I can remember when you get mobilised they drum it into you that your now part of the regular army, however, if you happen to be awarded a gong they, seem to set you apart from the regs with that V. Not sure what your views are on this but it seems that their either saying yeh this guy was only a stab so his medal isn`t as good, or are they saying crickey this guy was TA soldier and won a gong!!!! Whilst I`m on the subject do they use the same with the campaign medals? I was a regs reservist on my last tour, and my medal naming doesn`t reflect this, its just the same as my others. Am curious as to whether the TA medals, reflect their TA status or not, with that V?
