Miniature Medals
Miniature Medals and emblems must correspond exactly to the full size medals an individual is authorised to
wear.

There has recently been some speculation on what medals may be worn for service in Afghanistan: barring the exception listed below, only the Operational Service Medal Afghanistan is approved for wear, and similarly the same policy applies to service in Iraq where the Campaign Service Medal Iraq is awarded. The NATO ISAF medal may be retained as a keepsake, as may the NATO Iraq medal if received. These keepsakes are not available through Service channels. Any awards for gallantry or meritorious service are worn in addition to any campaign/operational /general service medals.
Service personnel on full tour exchange with Commonwealth countries may accept and wear those campaign medals instead of the UK CSM Iraq or OSM Afghanistan. Should this choice be made, that deployment will not count towards the ACSM.

Seen it done with the Balkan gongs, bloke turned up at Regt dinner with NATO gong with ribbon and clasp 'Former Yugoslavia' and NATO gong with bibbon and clasp 'Non-Article 5'. Both for tours in Bosnia, got nailed for Port at the dinner and bounced for wearing full size at church parade 3 days later.

If the Queen says no, then the answer is no.

I very much doubt it. His rack is almost as impressive as mine.

Are you TA?

Not totally true as you are allowed to wear one foreign or other awarded medal with your minatures on mess dress. I have seen many people wearing the Saudi or kuwait awarded medal from Op Granby.

Blobmeister quotes the din to back his point - what reference are you providing to back yours?

When your 'several' is in double figures then get back to me. Hobbyist.

Cougar, you really are either full of shite or really gullible! If the Queen says no to a full size gong then that no also tranfers across to your miniatures.
