This might fall into Walt Hunting but not yet.. A colleague wears an MID Oakleaf on his GSM. I have been unable to find mention of his MiD in the London Gazette. It is implied to me that he has "awarded it to himself". Am I correct that an MiD from possibly the Falklands would be in the London Gazette. Second question - How would I find out the service record or more correctly, which ribbons an ex-matelot could genuinely wear ?
