eaning Iraq/ Afghanistan medals

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Now obviously Iraq is overa dn Afghan should be winding down in the near future. However i was wondering if these medals (especially Iraq atm) are still 'available'?

    Say for example if you went to IMAR Iraqi 'Sandhurst' now could you earn the medal. Similarly post-Herrick there is a commitment to their Officer training; could you do similarly?

    Though for IMAR now that it's NATO Trainign Mission Iraq could you be awarded/ wear a NATO medal?
  2. Interesting one this, the Iraq medal is now 'closed' so it might it worth petitioning the great and the good for permission to wear the NTM-I medal. I'd not advocate holding the breath on this one though. (IMAR - nice place)
  3. would this not fall into the relms of the reconstruction medal?
  4. I don't think you can get it for military service even though the Iraq medal has finished. A few RMP's got it for working with the British Embassy out there. I could be talking out of my ******* shit stained hoop though.
  5. The RMP who are awared it get it for being on one of the CP teams out there; which, I cannot remember.
  6. Even the the campaign 'TELIC' has ceased, I'm sure there are a limited amount of staff jobs in Baghdad that still qualify for the CSM. They are few and far between and for higher ranking officers etc.
  7. What a CSM ?
