Fingal Medal and rosette

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by FNUSNU, Apr 28, 2005.

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. Does the rosette go on the medal as well as the tape? Your help is appreciated!!
  2. No, the rosette goes on the ribbon (tape), you usually only get one rosette as you should have a clasp on your medal. :D
  3. Cheers mate!
  4. Is this the same with the mini medals for mess kit????????????????
  5. Yes exactly the same for mini medals.

    The only medal that has a rosette instead of a bar is the Falklands 1982 campaign medal. This was the only time a bar was not specified and was a mistake. Apparently it makes life easier for unscrupulous medal collectors to upagrade a REMF type medal (eg the Gulf War 1 Cyprus Windsuring Medal - ex members of 3 Queens note) to a war zone one by easily adding a rosette. Bars are a bit harder to come by.
