A) Gulf War Syndrome?
B) Nectar points?
C) Argos voucher?
D) A 'thanks very much - see you next time'?.

I dunno - all I got was the box, the ribbon and a medal that looks like it had been stamped out with the heel of a navvy's boot and tarnishes about an hour after you polish it (with a non-abrasive cleaner, of course).

That's about all most can expect! 8O

Watto, only thing I've ever heard of people getting extra was the clasp, and that was only Op Telic (1 - before they had numbers!)

I think the technical term I'm looking for is errr... BOLLOX

Did you do 1, 2 AND 3? Maybe you deserve something then!

only Telic 1 (if you meet the criteria) get the rosette to go on your ribbon bar and the clasp to go on your medal ribbon. (rosette on ribbon bar signifies clasp on medal ribbon)

At a church parade in November I saw a number of soldiers who had put their rosette on the medal ribbon along with the clasp.

I heard a rumour that Telic 4 would get a rosette due to the fact there we had more contacts than anyone else since Korea but that was all it was....rumour. Does it really make that much difference?

Don't have a Telic medal. (Don't want one either). Do have more than both my parents who served in WW2.
Makes you think! :oops:

If they were dished out like sweets mine would be mouldy after nearly 3 years waiting :lol: :lol:

Although I have heard a rumour that it's finally caught up with me and is in RHQ.

No doubt waiting for the heavens to open to present them. :x :x
