Three years back there were still around 200 RN/RM personnel serving, wearing a South Atlantic medal as I understand, including 1SL at the time.
Funny as fcuk "marching" as the most junior rank in a uniformed squad of still-serving "Falklands 35" veterans. We had to stop every few dozen yards to let everyone catch-up.
You know you're getting on a bit when you look at Chelsea Pensioners and think "Hmmn, they don't look THAT old'
My O.C. in 90 had served in Korea. Bit of a hero IMHO as he made it to WO1 RSM . Way back when his then CO ordered him to order the WOs and Sgts mess to pay into an illegal “ fund” I think it was for wives and such . He stood up and said “No”.Did You know any WW2 veterans still serving when You joined?
