right to tell the story first, i joined in 2000, but in 2002 i was issued with golden jubilee medal, knowing that i did not meet the criteria it was thrown in a draw and never thought of again, untill now! i have been promoted to sgt and during a recent mess function asked why i was not wearing a queens golden jubilee medal, upon stating the above i was told that if i've got it im to wear it, and asked if it was on jpa which it is not but then nor is my iraq medal. what im after is what i do now? some have said that i can wear it some have said get in touch with jpac and once it is on jpa im covered. i understand im no where near the criteria but why was i issued with it? to be fair it is the only medal i was presented on parade instead of thrown over a desk! cheers for any help.
