Glaring medal mistake - E bay again

#2
Not only that he wants 80 quid, and then says they are a replacement group, which in e-bay talk means restrikes, however only walts will buy this, as any medal collecter worth his salt, will know about the MC.

I think it was around 1993 that the MM was dropped and the MC was awarded for all ranks.

The system for the award of Decorations and other Honours to Service personnel underwent a major revision in 1993, when the practice of having, in some categories of award, different medals for Officers and Other Ranks was discontinued. Thus for example the Military Medal is no longer awarded to Other Ranks, who instead are now eligible for the Military Cross which had previously been reserved for Officers and Warrant Officers.

Wack Walker was 2IC 3 Para Mortars for a while. Hasn't got an MC and as mentioned couldn't be awarded one anyway in '82 as an OR. What gets me is the seller has 100% feedback and obviously sells medals for a living. Surely he couldn't be so stupid!

Still see one of those MM recipients quite often here in Aldershot. Know a fair few of the others as well, God I'm getting old!
