    Does anyone have the latest on the issue of the new iraq medal? I am currently away from my unit and have not heard a sausage about it. Seen the picture though but where are they?

  3. Due to cuts, one medal will be issued per unit and will be displayed in RHQ on the second floor.

    Quit bitching about a sodding attendance badge.

    If you really want to know what it's like to wait for one, speak to lads who were at Suez.

  10. I recieved that Kuwait'y medal they issued for Op Granby in 1996 in Bosnia !!
     
  11. Interesting to see 102 Bn REME (V) recieve theirs from Bliar in Aug this year and they deployed in Jul 03 TELIC 2. Interesting to note the unit is in Newcastle and not far from his constituency in Sedgefield.Thoughts :evil:

    I was at same unit as 102 Bn REME (V), think they got their medals on 10th Sept., I've not got mine yet. So this wouldn't be a political tactic by T Bliar would it? Would he stoop this low? You bet he would.

    I've been told mines in the post!

    Better get on eBay!
     
  15. You don't need medals. You know where you've been, so simply stand in the corner of the mess and look smug, in the knowledge that Shaiba was hell.

    W*nkers. I'll bet your all fckuing STABS.
