If he was a sergeant at the time, surely it'd be the MM? Quite apart from the fact that the gongs shown are all Were Wore Too!

Never mind an MC he gets my nomination for the Perrier Comedy Award. I saw it on the other thread this morning and I've just watched it again. It is the funniest thing I've seen in years especially the bit when the interviewer says "I can see your wearing the Military cross" and the camera pans down.......... :D

Here a list. Agree on the rusty blade though.

39/45 star, Defence medal, Air Crew Europe star (WTF?), War Medal in the wrong order and two of them the wrong way round (reverse rather than obverse showing). Lying cnut needs a shoeing.

Falklands MCs:

Maj M H Argue, 3 Para
Capt T W Burls, Parachute Regt, D Sqn 22 SAS
Maj D A Collett, 3 Para
Lt C S Conner, 2 Para
Maj J H Crosland, 2 Para
Maj C D Farrar-Hockley, 2 Para
Maj J P Kiszely, 2 Scots Guards
Lt R A D Lawrence, 2 Scots Guards
Capt W A McCracken, 29 Cdo Regt RA
Capt A J G Wight, Welsh Guards

Mike Argue died about 3 years ago. Johnny Crosland was my boss for a while.

Regulars also got it if they never deployed overseas. I have my grandparents medals (he a 22 year career RAF, ended up as a SWO) and she (wartime WRAF Sergeant) and both have the Defence Medal.

The video is sheer class though.

there's a few missing off your list
One is defo missing.
It's a navy list so, all forgiven :wink:
Still makes the point that other ranks received the MM as Bugsy noted and that they were (apparently) awarded.

Willy McCracken and his humour is still going strong in Newcastle
