Why does it make You angry ?
It's His award and Yes in this Country anyone awarded the M.C is a Hero, what He does with it is His concern.
When I first joined My Battalion, I had a Platoon Sergeant and My Section Commander both with M.M's (now M.C's) from a Cross vacation in'80. Both left the system early. Both pissed off.
If this Man Armstrong feels His Family is the priority then leave Him be.
Dread said:I think ReTread is saying that the Country should look after veterans well enough so that they never feel the need to sell a medal for something so basic as looking after their family.
He is not making a complaint that the ex-Royal should not be allowed to sell.
i think it is a sorry state of affairs that our 'heroes' have to sell their medals in order to make ends meet.
