Just perused the 'Who's got the most medals?' thread on the Seniors site. Must confess I'm impressed with the number of individuals on the site sporting several rows of ribbons. When I joined the only people with more than one row of ribbons were the WW2 vets who had also served in the Korean War, most of them had also served in Palestine and the Malayan campaign, later those who remained also added the "New" GSM with bars for campaign service in Borneo, S.Arabia, Radfan etc. our last WW2 vet finally added the NI bar to his collection in the early to mid 1970s. Even those with DSOs, MCs, DCMs, MMs, OBEs, MBEs etc. never managed more than 11 or 12. I was in an infantry regiment. Now I'm not knocking Corps but I always thought it odd that personnel who had not seen so much as an angry man (apart, perhaps, from the operators of a mobile bath unit who ran out of hot water) on operations were awarded the same campaign medals as the infantry. Has the idea of a Combat Infantry Badge (rather like the US Army has) ever been considered?
