Jubilee Medal Qualification

#1
Does anyone know the qualification rules? I thought you had to have been in for 5 years to qualify, but saw someone wearing it the other day who I know hasn't... apparently they have claimed time in OTC/UOTC as counting towards the five years. Is this allowed?
 
#2
Did just a month short of 5 years regs and 3 years TA to date and got fcuked off at high port. I'm thinking of appealing.

Already earned 3 you gobshyte. But thanks for the input. Tosser.
 
#6
Agreed, it does look rather tacky. But if I'm due one then I want it.
 
#7
yet again.... fair one!

So what's your PSAO's line on it?

There seems to be quite a few pernickety jobsworths and lazy buggers in the Medals & Decorations department right now seeing as lots of people still havent recieved their TELIC medals despite returning from ops over 18 months ago.

So much for gongs being "good for morale".

I feel the same as devilish

I was entitled but never got one

Not in the right club apparently

I suppose I could just buy one :p


edit - What the hell am I doing in the Officers Mess >??

Just got a new PSAO, so will have to run it by him and see. I'll try tonight. Thanks for the reminder.

Dredging the memory banks here so if I'm talking total B*ll*cks feel free to say (I can rely on arrse users to do that can't I? :twisted: ) I was sure there were only a set number of Jubilee medals produced so that if you didn't get one at the time, that was it. Can anyone confirm or otherwise?

It is a buck shee medal just ads to cost of getting them remounted when you get the next one the qualification was that you had to have done 5 years at the time of the jubilee not just have done 5 years.

I understood that the 5 years was at the time of the jubilee, but i remember some FTRS chap trying to claim TA time and FTRS time and time in RNR and so on and being denied for some reason. So it strikes me as odd that someone should be allowed to count time spent in OTC/UOTC towards the qualifying time - surely TA service holds more weight than a university social club?

Listen chaps, it's not worth the hastle. Got 8 me self, including 3 I can't wear and my tailor's shares are going through the roof.

Must admit the fillies are rather attracted to an old knacker with stories associated with a chest full of bling 8)

The rules about TA, OTC service counting are true. All you have to do, if you were on of these people and have done less than 5yrs regular service up to the qualification date (1 Apr 03, as I recall, but check before quoting!) then you simply write a letter of appeal and get one. Sounds complicated, actually is very simple and like everything in the Army; must be done the hard way.

now are you on about the the QSJM? i got that one :wink:
I got screwed out of that one. Since it seems to not count on record, I could just buy one, no one would be the wiser now, but why bother? :lol:

Got mine due to the OTC thing counting. It might not be as high a commitment level (reflected in the available for mobilisation bounty given to group A TA) however it still counts. I agree it looks total and utter pap and I think i've worn mine once... Still due VRSM this year apparently... Wonder if I'll see that before I'm due the bar for it..

Fat cakes , how have you got the nerve to count OTC time in qualifiction for a Jubilee medal. I would be ashamed to put such a thing in a post. To think officers like you exsist .
